THANK YOU to everyone who joined Two Old Broads Productions for their presentation of the Arizona premiere of Ripcord by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire. Hilarity trumps sensibility in this high-stakes comedy about two women locked in a no-holds barred battle over pride and territory. The production received great reviews from critics and audience members.

"RIPCORD One-Ups 'The Odd Couple' at Theatre Artists Studio"-- Kerry Lengel, The Arizona Republic

"RIPCORD Parachutes Straight to The Funny Bone" -- Herbert Paine,


RipcordDress80At the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility a sunny room on the upper floor is prime real estate, and the cantankerous and unsociable Abby has long enjoyed the single-occupancy of her comfortable room. But, her solitude is quickly shattered when she is forced to share her quarters with the infuriatingly chipper newcomer, Marilyn. A seemingly harmless bet between the two 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.

Directed by Guest Director David Weiss, the cast featured Studio members Judy Rollings, Patti Davis SuarezTom Koelbel and Julie Lee with guest artists Nathan Spector and David Weiss.

Ripcord ran from Arpil 7 - 24, 2017.
