The second production of the summer season will be the wonderful new comedy, Ripcord by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire playing July 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 26, 27. Director Michael Genevie describes the play as based on television templates like the long-time classic tv series, On Golden Girls and new and popular Netflix series Grace and Frankie. Set in a sunny room on an upper floor in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, cantankerous Abby finds herself forced to share her quarters with new arrival Marilyn. She has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly-chipper woman by any means necessary. Genevie describes the new play as “having a wicked sense of humor – a la Golden Girls – and an entertaining story of these two women thrown together by a comic cosmic force – a la Frankie and Grace.”
