About

“Great fun and genuinely moving.”Time Out New York

When cantankerous Abby is forced to share her room in assisted living with endlessly chipper Marilyn, the two women make a seemingly harmless bet that quickly escalates into a dangerous and hilarious game of one-upmanship, revealing hidden truths that neither wants exposed. A deliciously inappropriate new comedy from Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Good People). 

Approximate run time: 2 hours with one intermission.

David Lindsay-Abaire"I'm thrilled to be back in my hometown, and back at the Huntington which has been my theatrical home in Boston. I'm especially excited that Huntington audiences are going to get to see Ripcord, which is another kind of homecoming for me, as it's a return to my earlier style of playwriting - more overtly comic, outrageous, whimsical, and a little vicious. But most importantly, of all my plays, Ripcord is my mother's favorite, so I'm happy that she'll only have to travel a few T stops to see it." — David Lindsay-Abaire
