Dreams of Peace & Freedom 

will be performed supporting

 

FREEDOM ROARS BACK

 

to underpin the timely restoration of

fundamental freedoms after the pandemic

 

These will be guerilla theatre performances, spontaneous when it is safe and legal.

 

(Performances will coincide with the 75th anniversary

of the speech that heralded the birth of modern

human rights, given by David Maxwell Fyfe in the dying days of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials

on August 28th and 29th 1946.)  

Song cycle Dreams of Peace & Freedom weaves the words of David Maxwell Fyfe with original musical settings of the poems which inspired him, exploring his philosophy of natural law, his journey from Nuremberg to Strasbourg, and the love story at its' heart.
