The radical ideas of Valerie Solanas explode in “S.C.U.M.: The Valerie Solanas Story,” a play by Kat Georges, directed by Peter Carlaftes. Solanas, author of the notorious S.C.U.M Manifesto—which foreshadowed the #metoo movement 50 years ago—famously shot and seriously injured Andy Warhol. The play explores Solanas’ radical views through the lens of a Factory “happening” featuring a cast of “Superstars,” art critics, and outsiders.
A Three Rooms Press production, “S.C.U.M.: The Valerie Solanas Story,” is the opening play in Georges’ new book THREE SOMEBODIES: Plays About Notorious Dissidents (Three Rooms Press; March 2018; $19.95), a trio of fascinating, cutting edge plays inspired by people who shook up the world—for better or worse. Copies of the book will be available at the event for purchase and signing.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $20 and include an autographed copy of THREE SOMEBODIES. General Admission is $12.
