RIPCORD
BY DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE

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.
