Following the success of the initial Tricycle Lawyers' 2001 production of Twelve Angry Men, and the three subsequent productions Are You Now Or Have You Even Been? (2003), Inherit The Wind (2005) and To Kill A Mockingbird (2008), the Tricycle Theatre welcomes a company of legal professionals to its stage in a fundraising production of Judgment at Nuremberg by Abby Mann. The production runs at the Tricycle from Wednesday 6 - Saturday 9 July, 2011 and will be directed by by Sally Knyvette (television and stage actor) and director of the previous lawyers' productions.

One of the most important records of the Holocaust, Judgment at Nuremberg is as potent and relevant as ever, and the Nuremberg trails remain a model of international criminal tribunals. Mann's overwhelming compassion strikes at the heart of human suffering and yet reaffirms humanity and justice. With a company fully cast from legal professionals, including several Judges, the actors bring a unique insight into what it means to practice law, and take to the stage to judge the Judges.

The proceeds from the production will go towards the Tricycle's Education, Social Inclusion and Artistic Programmes.

Over the last 30 years the Tricycle has developed a unique reputation for high artistic achievement and inclusive education and community work. The Tricycle Theatre is well-known in legal circles for its ground-breaking Tribunal and political plays. Productions include: Half the Picture: The Scott Arms to Iraq Inquiry, The Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, Srebrenica, The Colour of Justice: The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry and Justifying War: The Hutton Inquiry, all of which have been subsequently broadcast by the BBC, reaching audiences of more than 34 million people worldwide.
 
In 2010, as well as touring America a with The Great Game:Afghanistan, including two command performances for the Pentagon, the Tricycle launched a 9 play festival looking at the representation of women in political life: Women Power and Politics.

During the last decade, the Tricycle received the Evening Standard Special Award for its pioneering work in political theatre, the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement, as well as six other Olivier Award nominations for Tricycle productions, and most recently the 2010 Liberty Human Rights Arts Award.
