Script in Hand returns with Ripcord

When perpetually cantankerous Abby is forced to accept the ever-cheerful Marilyn as her new roommate at The Bristol Place Senior Assisted Living Community,  sparks begin to fly. A harmless wager for a bed by the window quickly escalates into an epic contest of wills involving Soduku, skydiving, the complications of extended family, and a hearty helping of peach cobbler. As the relationship between this incompatible pair develops, long-buried secrets come to the surface and the power of true friendship is revealed. Author David Lindsay-Abaire’s signature wit serves up yet another outrageous comedy which is as heartwarming as it is laugh-out-loud funny.

In the great tradition of mismatched, odd couples of the theatre, Abby and Marilyn can proudly stand tall.

Whether visiting a haunted house for Halloween or braving a parachute jump from an airplane, Abby and Marilyn are sure to deliver a wickedly funny and heartfelt night of laughter for all who join us at The Playhouse."
