RIPCORD

(included in $10 extra season)

An HilariousComedy  byDavid Lindsay-Abaire

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Assisted 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 old 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. Ripcord, a high-stakes comedy about two women of a certain age locked in a no-holds-barred battle.

Auditions: July 16, 17 @ 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre

Performances: August 31, September 1, 2, 3, 4*.

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Those involved in the show gather awaiting the reviews.

An hilarious send-up of show business and its often bizarre practitioners, which uses the occasion of a disastrous opening night party to pile one wildly funny comic sequence upon another. Produced with great success last season on Broadway, “This show is without a doubt hilariously, sidesplittingly funny…These are among the funniest lines to roll off a stage in years…IT’S ONLY A PLAY deserves only a rave.” —NY Times
