It would be hard to find a better moment to stage an adaptation of the radical feminist SCUM Manifesto by Valerie Solanas, whose anti-male diatribe became famous after she shot Andy Warhol in 1968. Directors Tom Kühnel and Jürgen Kuttner made the questionable decision, however, to cast three men as the central performers, reciting excerpts of the manifesto in Marilyn Monroe drag costumes. What saves the evening is that the men at least recite the lines in earnest.
