S.C.U.M. The Valerie Solanas Story by Kat Georges
— A Staged Happening— directed by Peter Carlaftes
Sunday, April 29, 7 pm Beyond Baroque, Venice, CA
Los Angeles, CA: 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. The work will receive its Los Angeles premiere in a staged happening at Beyond Baroque in Venice on Sunday, April 29, 7pm.
Solanas, author of the notorious S.C.U.M Manifesto—which foreshadowed the #metoo movement 50 years ago—shot and seriously injured famed pop artist Andy Warhol on June 3, 1968. The play explores Solanas’ radical views through the lens of a Factory “happening” featuring a cast of “Superstars,” art critics, and outsiders. Furiously-paced and punctuated with slicing humor, whip dances, and anarchist ideals, “S.C.U.M.” cuts through façades to capture the spirit and value of artistic imagination.
A Three Rooms Press production, “S.C.U.M.: The Valerie Solanas Story,” is the opening play in Georges’ THREE SOMEBODIES: Plays About Notorious Dissidents, a trio of fascinating, cutting edge plays inspired by people who shook up the world—for better or worse. In addition to “S.C.U.M,” the collection includes “Art Was Here,” inspired by poet-pugilist and Dada precursor Arthur Cravan, and “Jack the Rapper,” a mash-up of Jack the Ripper and T. S. Eliot. Copies of the book will be available at the reading for purchase and signing.
Cast members include Bibiana Padilla as Valerie Solanas, as well as Linda J. Albertano, Dawn Walters, S.A. Griffin, and Christian Georgescu.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $20, and include premium seating and an autographed copy of THREE SOMEBODIES. General Admission is $12.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
