Scars Written and Performed by Ophira Eisenberg Directed by Maggie Cino Original Music and Musical Direction by Adira Anram Magic by Matthew Holzclaw
NPR host, critically acclaimed author, Moth celebrity, comedian and storyteller Ophira Eisenberg tells the harrowing and hilarious story of acquiring and living with the dozens of scars that cover her body. From slicing the tip of her finger in a meat grinder at the age of 4, to surviving a near fatal car crash; from the Cesarean section she narrowly avoided, to the smallest, most frightening scar of all; there is no question that life has left it’s mark on Ophira.
Scars stitches together the rawness, vulnerability, and immediacy of first person storytelling with the explosive fun of music, magic, and audience interaction. Scars is the story of a woman who travels the path of wounded to warrior, and then back again.
