Redwood Curtain’s 20th Season Continues With…

Ripcord

by David Lindsay-Abaire
October 25 – November 17
Directed by Cassandra Hesseltine
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 quirky bet between the old women quickly escalates into a precarious game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

Local Reviews:
“The superb, ensemble cast is artistically co-anchored by the terrific twin talents of Peggy Metzger and Susan Abbey as the oddest of odd couples/roommates you’ll ever encounter.” — Beti Webb Trauth, Times-Standard

“And [director Cassandra] Hesseltine orchestrates the games with a fine sense of the tragic potential lurking beneath the comic surface of this all-too-relatable story.” — Pat Bitton, North Coast Journal
