Abby has lived a solitary life in her top-floor room at Bristol Place. Her abrasive personality makes sure that every roommate assigned to her leaves within the first month, which is just how she likes it. But Marilyn will be a tougher nut to crack. She’s optimistic, happy and unaffected by Abby’s attitude. Determined to gain control and win her personal space back, Abby turns up the heat by proposing a bet between the ladies that proves you’re never too old to learn new tricks.
The comedy of Ripcord isn’t all the show has to offer to audiences. “As the play progresses, the characters’ secrets are revealed, adding a more personal layer to the rivalry.” Director James R. Kuhl says. “That is the beauty of the show. It is a script that can be hilarious and quirky, but also have a great deal of heart at the same time.”
