THE BOOK
The Chelsea Hotel, New York, 1968. Nico, singer with The Velvet Underground, is waiting to shoot Andy Warhol’s latest movie and for her lover, Jim Morrison, when her
room is invaded by Valerie Solanas, radical feminist and would-be Warhol assassin. A duel to the death begins... 100 years since women got the vote, and 30 years since Valerie and Nico died, Fireraisers presents a reimagining of two female pop culture icons at the epicentre of ‘60s cool battling for control of their own destinies.

THE AUTHOR
Polly was born in Sussex and at 18, moved to London to train as an actor at RADA. She quickly realised that most of the roles for women were shit, and decided to write some plays where they got more of the fun stuff. She became a member of the Royal Court Young Writers programme, who produced her short play Trying It On (also adapted for BBC TV) and where she met Nathan Evans, the director of Femme Fatale.
She has been Writer-On-Attachment for Birmingham Rep, Theatre Absolute and Theatre Royal Margate. Polly co-founded Fireraisers Theatre Company, which The Guardian called ‘one of the great hopes of modern British Theatre’. A million years ago, she was a style journalist for i-D magazine, The Evening Standard and various others. And for a while, she worked as ‘Door Whore’ Polly Vinyl at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. She lives in East London.
