Upcoming Events

Hampton Theatre Company: Ripcord


David Lindsay-Abaire's comedy centered on two strong-willed seniors who clash over prime real estate in the fictional Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. "Ripcord" begins when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with Marilyn, a new arrival with an aggressively sunny disposition. A seemingly harmless bet between the women results in a riotous game of one-upmanship that yields lots of laughter-while also revealing deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. A bonus "talk back" with the cast is offered immediately following the March 25 Friday evening show.

Ticket holders will be required to show a photo ID and proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the day of the performance they are attending. Face-coverings will be required at all times while inside the theater. For more information and updates on safety protocols, visit
