"Ripcord"

Northeast Georgia Mountains
"Ripcord" runs Friday Apr 24, 2020 - Sunday May 3, 2020. With the feel of classic sitcoms such as "The Golden Girls" or "I Love Lucy," "Ripcord" takes audiences on a hilarious journey to the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility where the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarter with new-arrival, Marilyn. 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. PG13 (Language)
