overview

This is a biting comedy set in the Bristol Place Assisted Living Facility. It is centered around Abby, who takes pride in her residence in one of the most coveted rooms in the place. Soon Abby is forced to share her room with new arrival Marilyn, and now she is motivated to rid herself of this ever chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the two women quickly escalates into a game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these two worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would want to remain hidden.

"A show to treasure, by David Lindsay-Abaire's RIpcord is a deeply satisfying and vastly entertaining story of two elderly women thrown together by a comic cosmic force possessed of a wicked sense of humor"- Time Out-New York.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows begin at 8:00 pm, seating at 7:30 pm

Sunday and Wednesday matinees begin at 2:00 pm, seating at 1:30 pm
