A ruthless music theater performance about two sensational young women. Marianne Faithfull and Anita Pallenberg, the muses of the Rolling Stones, embody the desire for freedom of an entire generation. But what is the price of fame and recklessness?

Everything must change in 1966. A new world is born with its own music, fashion and morals. The generation of prudishness has come to an end. In the middle of that whirlpool, Marianne and Anita meet and a lifelong friendship begins. Beautiful, adventurous and greedy, they throw themselves into the middle of the spotlight, only to spiral down to the bottom.

In Sympathy for the Devil, we follow Marianne and Anita backstage. Their lives have high peaks, but also unimaginably low valleys. A story about love and seduction in a modern, raw production. Featuring parallels with the 'now' that are greater than expected. Once again, we examine the boundaries of sexuality and emancipation.
