Local bank RIBC escapes the clutches of liquidation when Trinidadian duo render island methods to ensure longevity forever and ever. On the verge of collapse, through great business acumen, an unparalleled powerhouse is forged from a fortuitous hookup with a suspicious syndicate of noxious nomads.

Garry, local egg poacher slash waffle technician, mooches enough loot to bankroll an ill-prepared pipe dream when he’s hoodwinked by born swindlers slash bank managers. Initially bedazzling the community with his swanky grease pit, he finds new-found stardom and wealth quickly turning sour after the untimely death on the premises of an esteemed international food critic.


Ron Erdely's Profile Image

Ron Erdely

Writer, Director

At age 4, Ron was forced to study piano. So he grew into an IT guy with no patience for incompetence. Craving a creative outlet, he fortuitously met Brendan with whom he devised RIBCAGE and became a writer/director/control freak.

He is especially proud of his Last Will and Testament, a personal manifesto that is almost endlessly verbose while lacking wholly in content.

    Rather crass typical british humour, beats a pie in the face though..

    Enjoyed it. Good luck tonight - I don't think the popularity will count for much to be honest, figure it'll be more on merit. (Randy Justice dude)

    The cinematography was good. I don't really like the character. He's just given a few moments of creepiness and rudeness with no even remotely redeemable features. Maybe there's more going on there. It also seemed a little weird and sexist. Don't get it. The actor playing Garry is quite good. I also have no idea how this relates to the plot of the show (which seems to be about how Garry is a bad chef? and there's a bank manager?). Best of luck!

    Cheeky and backhanded...just like the slap Garry is about to lay on his new lover. Amazing! Can't wait for more
