Live theatre performance

1968, New York. Andy Warhol's muse and his would-be assassin collide in this unconventional dark comedy about fame, failure and feminism.

Nico, The Velvet Undergound's glamorous front woman, is waiting to shoot Warhol's latest movie when her room is invaded by Valerie Solanas, writer of the radical SCUM Manifesto. A darkly comic battle begins. Can these two iron-willed opponents become allies and change their futures?

'Fireraisers ... one of the great hopes for British theatre. Wiseman's writing sears and burns' - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The performance is followed by a live discussion on 'gender and rage' with writer/actor Polly Wiseman and Dr Zoe Harvey, clinical psychologist
