Maleness is a deficiency disease.” - SCUM Manifesto, 1967 

Valerie Jean Solanas shot Andy Warhol. This is the final and only time this will be mentioned. Valarie said she wasn’t a lesbian, a feminist or even a woman - she was a writer. This is not a feminist play about Valerie Jean Solanas, who said all men are a biological accident. This is not a manifesto. This is not a memoir to a woman who died alone. This is an interdisciplinary act of justice to give artistic merit where it’s due.
