The Little Theatre of Alexandria (LTA) is presenting “Ripcord” from now through June 26. It’s the story of two women thrown together by a cosmic force with a wicked sense of humor. The play is written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, who masterfully injects inspired moments of physical comedy and unexpected truths into the story. According to Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Director Jessie Roberts said, “Even people whose personalities are fundamentally different can not only get along with each other but they can find positive insight into themselves through discovering each other's strengths – and weaknesses.” He added: “Certainly, the challenges of doing a play that is based on personal interactions during the pandemic were unique. Fortunately, most of the characters in the play don't like each other or have a purely professional relationship so distancing wasn't too difficult. But it was frustrating for the actors and for me, too, to not be able to see and react to facial expressions during the rehearsal process during which we had to be masked." As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, "Co-Producer Lynn O’Connell said: “I had actually produced “The Revolutionists” in March as well, and from that experience, I felt quite comfortable navigating Covid safety measures and best practices. Now, I shall take a break for a while – and travel.” The other producer is Alan Wray. She added: “This is truly a comedy, and we want people to leave laughing and being joyful about being in a theatre again. That said, the play does have an underlying theme of the importance of connecting with others and of forgiveness."
