Dreams of Peace and Freedom


English Cabaret with C theatre (UK)

Returning to the Edinburgh Fringe as the 75th anniversary of ECHR approaches, this widely-acclaimed performance with a backdrop of archive film explores the birth of modern human rights after World War II through the eyes of Nuremberg prosecutor and ECHR champion, David Maxwell Fyfe. His words intertwine with Sue Casson’s original and ethereal musical settings of the poets who inspired him on his journey along his mythical stream of natural law from Nuremberg to Strasbourg.

One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard… Sublime. A secular hymn for humanity’ (MusicalTalk.com).

‘A very necessary story…. Brilliantly performed’ (Derek Awards).
