East West Street: A Song of Good & Evil is an extraordinary live performance based on Philippe Sands’ bestselling book, East West Street, and presents actors, video, words, and music to explore conflicts and connections between the men at the heart of the Nuremberg war crimes trial: Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin, and Hitler’s notorious lawyer, Hans Frank.
