Scar Tissue and Thisability
By Gabriel Rivas Gomez
These are two new short plays by Gabriel Rivas Gomez with guest director Jorge Huerta. Gomez has been called a fresh, young theatrical voice with his plays offering an unflinching look at the epic nature of some painful relationships.
Scar Tissue follows a heart surgeon whose own heart is metaphorically in disrepair. Her latest patient, a veteran, has her asking questions and opening old wounds. Scar Tissue’s companion play, Thisability, features Zuli, a teen with cerebral palsy whose body has never worked right.
