NPR host, critically-acclaimed author, Moth celebrity, comedian and storyteller Ophira Eisenberg tells the harrowing and hilarious story of acquiring, surviving and living with the dozens of scars that cover her body. From putting her finger into a meat grinder at the age of four, to surviving a near fatal car crash, to the smallest, most frightening scar of all; life has marked Ophira to an extreme degree. Scars stitches together the rawness, vulnerability, and immediacy of first person storytelling with added levels of audience interaction including a Scar competition, Interview portion, and 2 guest storytellers who add their perspective on their scars. When does a wound become a scar? How do you get rid of scars? When creams, plastic surgery and time fail to heal, what’s left? Scars is the story of a woman who travels the path of wounded to warrior, and then back again.
