The Golden Girls meets the Odd Couple! RIPCORD is a hilarious comedy of two elderly women thrown together by a wicked sense of humor. A good room in a senior living facility is prime real estate to cantankerous Abby, who is forced to share with chipper Marilyn. A seemingly harmless bet engages the women, with help from their family and friends, and quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-up-manship, revealing the deeper (darker) truths of these worthy and tenacious opponents. Who knew the ‘golden years' were so dangerous?!
