SCUM is fantastical burlesque/theater piece that uses dance, music, comedy, stripteases, and text to look at two female figures: Valerie Solanas and Carolyn Sapp. Valerie shot Andy Warhol and wrote the SCUM Manifesto, which calls for the extermination of all men. Carolyn was Miss America in 1992. They both have strong ideas on how to be a woman, but neither of them can quite get it right.
