Both a coming-of-age love story and a spiritual awakening, “Scab” focuses on two grad school roommates from very different backgrounds.
Directed by theater professor David Ledoux, Wagner’s Stage One production features performance majors Lisa Peterson (Anima), Dana Gough (Christa), Melissa Silano (Mary-Androgyne/Kelle/Mom), T.J. Lamando (Alan/Artie/Davie/Angel Two) and Nicole Amato (Jenna/Angel One).
Wagner’s production design team includes Elise Sacco (sets), Dominga Noe (costumes), Elise Pizzonia (lights) and Patrick Richards (sound). Jeana Shea is production stage manager.
“Scab” was first presented at the Women’s Expressive Theatre in New York City in 2002. Subsequent productions were staged by Eternal Spiral Productions in Philadelphia, Impage Theatre in Berkeley, Cal., and the Blue House Theatre in Los Angeles.
