Up On The Main Stage

The Hippodrome Theatre proudly presents


by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire
directed by V Craig Heidenreich
February 28-March 25, 2018
Everyone’s had that roommate. The one who reveled in grinding your gears. The one you didn’t quite strangle in their sleep but if they did that one thingone more time…
The Hippodrome Theatre presents the hilariously heartfelt Florida Premiere of “Ripcord.” A tale of two roommates who should not be in the same state, much less the same room!
Two of Gainesville’s theatre icons Nell Page and Sara Morsey take it to the limit when a simple bet escalates into a no-holds-barred epic battle. It’s the Thunderdome in the old folks home for a wild night of hilarity and hijinks at the Hipp.
Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Lindsay-Abaire, has created a play of high-stakes hilarity, watch for yourself as each character tries to rip the other to bits.

“‘Ripcord’ invites the audience and anyone who experiences this story to embrace the idea of being present and joyful, because life is going to end whether you like it or not,” said director VC Heidenreich. “You get to choose if you want that peach cobbler to taste like peach cobbler or taste like paste.”

The New York Times calls RIPCORD “An expertly engineered comedy!” and Deadline calls it “vastly entertaining… a show to treasure.”
“Ripcord” is as heartfelt as it is deliciously inappropriate, directed on the Hippodrome Mainstage by VC Heidenreich. A Florida Premiere!
