About Ripcord
A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate at Bristol Senior Living Facility. So, when cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with happy-go-lucky Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman…by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet quickly escalates into a high-flying, dangerous game of one-upmanship in this deliciously inappropriate new comedy, perfect for warming up the winter.


Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati is a professional theatre dedicated to producing world and regional premieres of works that often explore compelling social issues. We fulfill our mission through our stage productions and educational outreach programs that enlighten, enliven, enrich and inspire our audiences.
