Scumm: A Manifesto Review

By Ezekiel McAdams

Scumm:  A Manifesto comes from local company, Scantily Glad Theatre and offers a raw, unapologetic look at modern feminism.

Written and performed by S.E. Grummett and Caitlin Zacherias, who play dual roles, the play weaves back and forth from modern day wioth characters, Robyn  and Marie as well going back and showing the relationship between Valerie Solanas and Andy Warhol in the late 60's.

                Grummett and Zacharias are incredible as they play dual characters with relative ease, both with their  vocal afflictions and body language that help transport the audience into each narrative easily.

                Grummett has an ease to her characters but also displays an edge while needed while Zacharias is both loud, obnoxious and vulnerable.

                SCUMM is sharply written and directed showing sharp dialogue and strong performances by Grummett and Zacharias.

                Special mention goes to the two male actors who play the turds, Ivan Kolosnjaji and Jessie Kraus,

                SCUMM is loud, thought provoking, abrasive and strongly feminist. I cannot recommend this show highly enough.
