SCAB NW Premiere
A Wickedly funny and provocative modern love story.
Written by Sheila Callaghan.
Directed by Meghan Shalom Arnette.
Live Girls! Theater invites you to the Northwest premiere of SCAB--an intense, sharply witty, wacky yet joyful play by one of America's most promising and audaciously imaginative playwrights, the award-winning Sheila Callaghan.
A fresh, fiery coming of age story, SCAB brings together a post-nuclear family of two very different women, a malevolent statue of the Virgin Mary and a houseplant named Susan to create offbeat, comedic exploration of friendship, love, pain and healing. (Backstage)
"written with a yen for interesting language and liberally salted with well-observed details of the lives of newly minted adults...the play shines. (The New York Times)
"Sheila Callaghan crafts sparkling dialogue for two goofy graduate students in LA... romantic entanglements are added with wit, and sensitivity. A whip-smart play." -TimeOut NY (Critic's Pick)
"Rarely does a play give such an impression that the characters were alive long before I began watching them and continued with their lives after I went home... The plot is unusual without being implausible, the dialogue is intelligent while still sounding natural... I would watch this play again without hesitation." -offoffoff.com
