JUDGMENT AT NUREMBERG - A Staged Reading | April 20 & 21 | Lake City Presbyterian Church, Fellowship Hall, 3841 NE 123rd St, Seattle | 7:30pm | Tickets | Join us for a staged reading of Abby Mann's powerful play "Judgment at Nuremberg," directed by Seattle Rep veteran Gordon Coffey, and followed by a community discussion. This event is co-produced, and features performances by Coffey, Theodore Deacon and appellate lawyer Mike King. The cast features luminaries in the Seattle legal community, including retired Court of Appeals judge Ken Grosse, retired King County Superior Court judge Robert Alsdorf, and sitting King County Superior Court judges John Erlick and Holly Hill. 

Well known from Stanley Kramer's film and a Playhouse 90 version, the play explores the choices that confront those charged with responsibility for law and justice, when a country seized by fear turns for salvation to a "leader" who cares nothing for human dignity, human rights, democracy or the rule of law.
