Premiere Stages' production of Gino Diiorio's powerful new play Scab will begin performances this week on Thursday, September 8 in Kean University's Bauer Boucher Theatre Center (Vaughn Eames Hall, 1000 Morris Avenue, Union, N.J.). Selected as a finalist from the 2020/21 Premiere Play Festival, Scab features actors John Anthony Torres and Monica Wyche. John J. Wooten, producing artistic director of Premiere Stages, directs.

In Diiorio's highly topical story, Gilda, a middle-aged woman, has to train Eduardo, a young Mexican man, how to be a shop foreman when her factory plant moves to Mexico. Over the course of a week, they discover that their assumptions regarding personal expectations and cultural differences are not always correct.

The design team for Scab includes scenic design by Bethanie Wampol, costume design by Karen Lee Hart, lighting design by Zack Gage, sound design by Nathan Leigh and props by Shannon White. Dale Smallwood is the production stage manager.
