Battle lines are being drawn at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. Crabby Abby won’t pay for a private room, but keeps her solitude with an impenetrable spite. That is until new roomie, the fiercely cheerful Marilyn, not only wants to stay, but is vying for Abby’s prime real estate by the window. To settle the score, a seemingly harmless bet reveals the tenacity of these worthy opponents and escalates into an outrageous game of one-upmanship. The Odd Couple meets The Golden Girls in this over-the-top comedy from Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire.

Running Time:
Approximately 2 hours.
