SCUM: a manifesto



The only way women can truly be free is to kill all men and overthrow the government: this is feminism according to Valerie Solanas. SCUM: A Manifesto explores the dark extremes of this feminism. The play interlocks the stories of two modern women slowly getting influenced by the angry pages of the infamous 1967 manifesto, as well as the story of the manifesto’s writer Valerie Solanas, who shot Andy Warhol. The witty and sharp S.E. Grummett and Caitlin Zacharias jump seamlessly between the conflict of the modern women reading the manifesto and the tension between Solanas and Warhol of the past. The show presents a self-awareness that comes with its cheeky sometimes crude jokes, but slowly exposes its violent side as the well-paced conflict erupts. Audiences will be left questioning the parallels between Solanas’ extreme feminism, and the ugly side of modern feminism. Reviewed by Michelle Guthrie.
