Judgment at Nuremberg - Bridewell Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
LONDON-based charity, Paul’s Cancer Support Centre, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with a range of large-scale fundraising events.
These include a theatre production of Judgment at Nuremberg, which will be performed at The Bridewell Theatre from Wednesday, March 20 to Saturday, March 23, 2013.
Written by Oscar-winning Abby Mann, Judgment at Nuremberg is one of the most powerful plays about the Holocaust; The Nuremberg trials remaining a model for international criminal tribunals and Judge Haywood’s struggle to establish justice and responsibility as relevant as ever.
This production stars a company fully cast from legal professionals. In this way, the actors have unique insight into what it means to practise law, as they take to the stage to judge the judges.
The play is directed by Sally Knyvette, who has directed five previous lawyers’ productions, all of which were hugely successful. It is hoped that this production will raise over £10,000 for the charity.
Paul’s Cancer Support Centre is a registered charity working with people who have cancer, their family and friends. The charity serves a wide community through its complementary therapies, groups, courses, information service, home visiting service and online resources. Now in its 30th year, the charity’s aim is to continue supporting people affected by cancer to find new strength, resilience and their own way of coping with the challenges cancer brings.

Evening performances will be followed by a reception with wine and a light buffet.
