Dramtic Comedy / 1-2m, 3f / Simple Set Anima's sphere of desperation and self-destruction is invaded by the arrival of her perky new roommate, Christa.

Moved by a particularly malevolent statue of the Virgin Mary and a houseplant named Susan, Anima and Christa soon enter into a profound and intimate friendship that incurs traumatic results. "Brilliantly and poetically rendered...[Callaghan's] playful sense of language and her attunement to her characters are enthralling." - Time Out Chicago "Scab...is a textbook example of promising work, 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 "Darkly funny forays into the surreal...Callaghan shows talent in the inventive fantasy sequences...A stylish production." - The Village Voice
