Margot Monroe’s Nibelungenlied tells the story of two aspiring actresses set against the Hollywood dream factory. Margot becomes a movie star and Margaret, who is caring for her autistic brother Jonathan, becomes a screen writer.

A tragic love affair and the pressure of rising stardom causes Margot Monroe to seek therapy and fantasise an expressionistic film/theatre version of the ancient German Nibelungenlied whilst Margaret frantically works at her first screenplay.

In devising this piece the Ensemble have woven together the myths of Hollywood and the ancient European myth of the Nibelungenlied.
