It’s not every day you see a play based on two senior women in competition for sole access to the room of an assisted living facility. But that’s exactly what David Lindsay-Abaire, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers,and Good People, has put forth in the quirky comedy, Ripcord. Full of hijinks and pranks, the fun doesn’t stop at the opposing personalities of Abby Binder and Marilyn Dunne. Ripcord pushes past the typical “Odd Couple” formula to present nuanced and interesting characters with the type of lived experiences that could only come from age. From sudoku to skydiving, the secrets among them will almost break these women while simultaneously solidifying their friendship.
Coronado patrons are in for a total delight of witty banter, goofy laughs, and companionship redefined.
