Best described as Golden Girls meets The Odd Couple, Ripcord is an uproarious new comedy by noted playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Ripcord takes us to the Bristol Place Assisted Living Facility where foul-tempered Abby has just learned that she has to share her sunny top-floor room with newcomer Marilyn. Loathe to share her space, Abby challenges Marilyn to a seemingly harmless bet where the loser abandons the sunny top-floor room. The events that follow take the women on a ridiculous journey that reveal not only the tenacity of these worthy opponents but also some secrets they would rather remain hidden. Ripcord brings us the fight of the century, and after all, wouldn’t they know?
