About Pyromania: The Warhol Assassin
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
I never shot a gun before. I liked it. It felt good...For the first time in a long time, I felt good.
Still reeling from her failed attempt to assassinate the great Andy Warhol in 1968, Valerie Solanas sits at her typewriter and plots the extermination of the male sex. Change is coming, she can feel it. It is inevitable.
Meanwhile in 2018, art historian Jo McAllister is holed up in her studio, making screenprint after screenprint into the night with thick yellow paint. Tomorrow she will unleash hell, but tonight preparations must be made. The delivery must be impeccable. She mustn’t be misunderstood.
The Warhol Assassin is a new play by writer and theatre maker, Amy Conway (Super Awesome World, 30:60:80): a gaudy, messy, conversation about power and powerlessness, action and inaction, anger and madness.
Amy Conway is a recipient of Fire Exit’s Pyromania bursary programme.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Pyromania: The Warhol Assassin are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
