Scar Tissue Victoria M. Fragnito, playwright

About This Show

Best friends Jessica and Sam both carry scars that have never quite healed. Jessica struggles to forget a damaging relationship from her formative years in college while Sam ignores a fractured bond with her sister. The catalyst for healing, they discover, is a wrenching glance into the shadows of the past. After years of denial, they must confront their hidden wounds…together. [Trigger warning.]
