A comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so 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 women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. As heartfelt as it is deliciously inappropriate, the Players is thrilled to present the New Hampshire premiere of this hilarious play.
“A show to treasure. David Lindsay-Abaire’s ripping RIPCORD is a deeply satisfying and vastly entertaining story of two women thrown together by a comic cosmic force possessed of a wicked sense of humor...” Deadline
