Our final staged reading of the season “Ripcord” by David Lindsay-Abaire much like his other comedies (“Fuddy Meers” and “Rabbit Hole”) introduces audiences to characters that are unforgettable. The story begins in a sunny room on an upper floor of prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. When the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the two women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship. What are these two willing to do?
Vastly entertaining, a show to treasure.
There is something for everyone in the laugh-out-loud comedy overflowing with massive amounts of heart!
Like a fleet of shiny subway trains in a utopian metropolis, ‘gotcha’ moments arrive right on schedule in Ripcord David Lindsay Abaire's expertly engineered situation comedy about adversarial roommates in a retirement home.
