Auditions for Ripcord by David Lindsay-Abaire and produced by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Service will be held at the Heritage Barn located at 5238 Young Road Stow, Ohio from 7 PM to 9 PM each evening.
The Story: A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior 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.
Cast consists of 3 women and 3 men who can play these ranges:
Abby Binder – senior home resident 60 – 80
Marilyn Dunne – senior home resident 60 – 80
Scotty – Resident Aide 20-30
Benjamin, Lewis & Clown – 40s
