Dreams of Peace and Freedom: The Streams of Natural Law
English Cabaret with C theatre (UK)
A powerful combination of film, text, and performance exploring the
birth of modern human rights, told through the eyes of Nuremberg
prosecutor and champion of the ECHR, David Maxwell Fyfe. His words
intertwine with Sue Casson’s musical settings of the poets who inspired
him on his journey along his stream of natural law. Conceived and
performed by members of the next generation of Maxwell Fyfe’s family.
‘Tells a very necessary story of not only an amazing man, but also the
hopelessness of man and mankind's hope for the future. Brilliantly
performed’ (Derek Awards). ‘Richly layered… celebrates the concept of
natural law’ (LouReviews.blog).
A companion piece to the film version of this work, Dreams of Peace and Freedom: The Human’s in the Telling.
Available in our digital on-demand programme and was performed live in our Edinburgh Fringe 2022 season.
