CCT Opens 35th Season with Comedy Ripcord
CCT opens its 35th season with Ripcord, a comedy by David Lindsay-Abaire. There are seven chances to catch this wacky play over three weekends in November. Show dates are November 8-9, 15-16 and 22-23, 2019 Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, with one Sunday matinee on November 17 at 4 PM.
In a sunny room at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn. She has no choice but to attempt to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the two 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. This cleverly written tale of adversaries is funny and touching.
Diana Prince directs the cast of Ripcord: Wendy Keeler Adams, Neil Admirari, Michael Baker, Beth Moss Mahar, Maurya McClure, and Michael Wright.
Ripcord tickets are $20 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and CCT members, and may be purchased (for cash only) at the CCT box office prior to each show, which opens 45 minutes before curtain. This play is not recommended for children under age 13.
All performances are held at the Caribbean Community Theatre at #18 Estate Orange Grove in Christiansted, St. Croix.
CCT productions are jointly supported by a grant from the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, and co-sponsored by Diageo USVI, Marshall & Sterling Insurance, and Seascape Pool Center.
