World Premiere Comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by David Hyde Pierce
With Marylouise Burke, Rachel Dratch, Glenn Fitzgerald,
Daoud Heidami, Nate Miller, Holland Taylor

IT’S THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY.
AND THEY WOULD KNOW.

David Lindsay-Abaire, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers, and Good People, returns to MTC with Ripcord, a high-stakes comedy about two women of a certain age locked in a no-holds-barred battle to the death directed by Tony and Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce.

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Assisted Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby (Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Holland Taylor) is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn (frequent Lindsay-Abaire collaborator and Drama Desk Award winner Marylouise Burke), 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. As heartfelt as it is deliciously inappropriate, this hilarious world premiere marks the author’s sixth collaboration with MTC.

Ripcord was commissioned by MTC through the Bank of America New American Play Program. Ripcord is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award. Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club.
