Ripcord (Off-Broadway at New York City Center Stage 1) Ripcord is a comedy written by David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by David Hyde Pierce. The show is described as such: "A high-stakes comedy about two women of a certain age locked in a no-holds-barred battle to the death. A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Assisted Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is 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. A seemingly harmless bet between the old 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."
