For 4 years irritable and sarcastic Abby Binder, through sheer force of her rude personality, has kept a room to herself at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. When bubbly, bright and unbearably cheerful Marilyn Dunne is placed in her room, Abby tries her usual tricks, but fails to scare her annoying new roommate away.
Marilyn, for her part, loves the challenge of Abby’s bad attitude and refuses to budge. Exercising her taste for competition and her love of pranks, Marilyn makes a bet. If Abby can break Marilyn's endless patience and make her angry, Marilyn will move out. However, if Marilyn can successfully frighten Abby, who claims never to get scared, Marilyn will get the bed by the window.
David Lindsay-Abaire’s Ripcord is an often slapstick, always surprising comedy, an enemies-to-friends story for a pair of excellently well-rounded, mature women.

“A show to treasure. David Lindsay-Abaire’s ripping 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… With Lindsay-Abaire a shape-shifting writer of always humanist works—nothing ever happens merely for its own sake. There are deeper issues lurking below the comedic surface…that gradually build from belly laughs to something more emotionally nutritious.”
“David Lindsay-Abaire’s tastily sweet-and-sour RIPCORD is great fun!... Solidly crafted, the play is larded with moments of surprise, both wacky and more substantial. When the play gets serious, it’s genuinely moving. Beyond the high jinks, RIPCORD offers a compelling look at the pleasure of a challenge and the challenge of finding pleasure.”
