A bittersweet comedy about the choices we make in life, Rope’s End leads us through twists and turns, and ends up in a surprising and memorable place.
Tony Boon has reached the end of his rope – figuratively – and perhaps literally, because he’s trying to tie an ominous-looking loop in a length of rope. The possibility of suicide looms in the air. But he happens across a photo – the love of his life. Maybe she can somehow rescue him, change everything, if he can just get up his nerve to contact her. There’s only one small problem. He’s let 31 years go by. He last saw her, fleetingly, at summer camp when they were 13. And in 31 years, things change. What if she doesn’t remember him? Even worse, what if she does?
One Male: Mid 40’s
One Female: Mid 40’s, but also able to play the daughter in her mid 20’s
