Play Notes


RIPCORD By David Lindsay-Abaire Jan. 13 – 29, 2023 | Previews Jan. 10 – 12 In the Historic Arcade Theatre From the twisted and brilliant mind of the Pulitzer Prize & Tony-winning author of Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers, and Good People, comes a high-stakes comedy about two women of a certain age locked in a no-holds-barred battle to the death! A sunny room on the top 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 her infuriatingly chipper roommate by any means necessary. A harmless bet quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these two old ladies, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. Take a leap for big laughs as a retirement home bet between two ‘golden girls’ escalates into the stratosphere! “Deeply satisfying and vastly entertaining!” —Deadline Hollywood
