Ripcord: Audio Described

An older lady wearing a pearl necklace and patterned pink jacket smiles at the camera. She holds out a saucer and hand grenade.

Where: Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide Festival Centre, Adelaide


Monday, 23 November 2020, 5:30pm Sensory Tour, 6:30pm Performance

Saturday, 28 November 2020, 1pm Sensory Tour, 2pm Performance

Abby has lived in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility for four years. She likes reading, peach cobbler, silence and wants nothing more than to live alone. Marilyn has just taken up the spare bed in Abby’s room. She loves small-talk, skydiving and wants nothing more than Abby’s bed by the window.

Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire’s razor-sharp comedy sees two formidable old women duke it out to claim their rightful spot in the nursing home. Viciously funny and charmingly affecting, Ripcord is a story about second chances and a powerful reminder that you should never, ever mess with an old lady.

Presented by State Theatre Company South Australia.

Your COVID-19 safety questions answered:

How will social distancing requirements be enforced?
Audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre will be seated in a chequerboard layout. This allows all audience members to maintain the required distance from each other. This seating arrangement will apply to all patrons, regardless of their relationship.

Why can’t I sit next to my friend, companion or family member?
Seating is allocated to accommodate adequate spacing in each row. For that reason, you must sit in the seat assigned to you on your ticket and will not be permitted to sit in the seat next to another patron, even if they are your friend or family. Patrons will not be permitted to move or change seats during a performance, as this may affect other audience members in the rows behind and in front.

Is it safe to return to the theatre?
The decision to return to the theatre has been made due to the Federal and State Governments’ public health advice in dealing with the risk of spreading novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the recent State Government release of the Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions. More information can be found at

Adelaide Festival Centre will monitor adjustments to restrictions, and patrons will be notified of any changes. Up to date information will be available here.

What kind of health measures will there be in place at Her Magesty’s Theatre?
Current venue safety and sanitisation can be found on the Adelaide Festival Centre website.
