A trio of compelling, cutting edge plays on notorious rebels including radical feminist and Warhol attacker Valerie Solanas (SCUM: The Valerie Solanas Story), Dada instigator Arthur Cravan (Art Was Here), and a twisting tale of Jack the Ripper and T.S. Eliot (“Jack the Rapper”). Playwright Kat Georges paints each of these plays with bold, innovative strokes that expand the boundaries of the theatrical milieu. As compelling to read off the page as to perform, these three plays offer sharp dialogue and prismatic views of their rebellious subjects, casting aside stereotypical bullet-pointed personalities to establish new perspectives on the subjects of each play.
