The Lords of Misrule

One invincible knight. One impossible quest


The Lords of Misrule present the story of Sir Sivrit of Spannungsbogen, a knight like no other. Worn out by the massive empire carved out by Sivrit’s victories, the Holy Roman Emperor discovers that having an unbeatable knight is perhaps not all it’s cracked up to be. When, in desperation, the Emperor sets Sivrit the impossible task of killing Death, Sivrit embarks on a journey that will take him from the circles of Hell to the highest spheres of heaven, leaving behind him a trail of destruction.

An original production by PhD candidate James Hillson, Sivrit draws on the Nibelungenlied, Dante’s Divine Comedy and The Three Living and Three Dead Kings in a vibrant and humorous reinvention of medieval tales of knighthood.
