Ripcord graphic


Two Old Broads Productions presents the Arizona premier 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.

At 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.

" . . . Mr. Lindsay-Abaire's script is admirable in its precision and symmetry; there's not a comic setup that isn't balanced by a logically consistent payoff." – NY Times
