Starring Marie Cormier & Birdie Newman Katz!

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when cantankerous Abby (Katz) is forced to share her room with new-arrival Marilyn (Cormier), she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. 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.  Funny, inappropriate, and heartfelt! (This play contains profanity.)
