“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
“I'm so excited to be jumping into the absurd and moving world of David Lindsay Abaire. The Huntington and Boston both have ties to this artist and his unique perspective. I look forward to creating my own and to the discoveries that follow and to being back at the Huntington where some of my favorite theatrical experiences have taken shape.”— Jessica Stone
“With Ripcord, we welcome back two comedic geniuses to the Huntington: Boston-native David Lindsay-Abaire and Jessica Stone. David is among the greatest playwrights ever to come out of the City of Boston and the author of our recent smash-hit about Southie, Good People. Jessica Stone is a lauded actress and the director of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. With this kind of genius at work, it is no surprise that this play is laugh-out-loud funny with a truly moving underbelly. It’s The Odd Couple with old women, nursing home shenanigans, and skydiving – what’s not to love? ”— Peter DuBois
