SCUM

An apocalyptic war has begun, and four friends leave behind their board games and comic books to survive underground. What starts out as a prolonged sleepover turns into a horror story that reminds you people can be infinitely more destructive than nuclear bombs.

Content Warning: Mature language, themes of sexual assault, and depictions of violence and bodily fluids. In performance there are loud noises and darkness.

    This play is a fantastic introduction to a unique up and coming voice in the new play world. End of the world plays seem to be common these days but I have yet to read one that tackles it like this. The way Shear explores the dissolution of this friendship in this play is brilliant and I love the way the female character is fully fleshed out and complicated. A perfect play for adventurous actors, directors and designers.
