STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

What happens when two 70-somethings battle over control of a desirable room in an assisted living facility?

Find out when Sawtooth Productions and Laughing Stock Theatre present a play reading of David Lindsay-Abaire’s comedy “Ripcord.”

The play reading will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in the lobby of the Argyros Performing Arts Center. There is a suggested donation of $10 and free wine and cookies will be served.

Kathy Wygle and Danny Kennedy, both prominent figures in launching Sun Valley’s theater scene, will star as the two elderly women who are thrown together.

One has always managed to have a quiet room to herself by being cantankerous enough to send new roommates scurrying in the opposite direction.

But she finds her match when an enthusiastic, optimistic and very talkative roommate moves in. Soon, the two are fighting an all-out war of comic proportions.

Pamela Sue Martin is the director. The rest of the cast features David Janeski, Aly Wepplo, Laird Erman and MacKenzie Harbaugh.

David Lindsay-Abaire is one of America’s funniest playwrights. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for “Rabbit Hole,” about a couple trying to overcome their grief after the accidental death of their 4-year-old son.

He also wrote the comic drama “Good People,” a Tony Award winner about a single mother caring for her handicapped daughter, and the absurdist 1999 hit “Fuddy Meers,” which revolves around an amnesiac abducted by a mysterious stranger.
