Commemorating the centennial of the “Christmas Truce” — in which World War I troops on both sides of the lines staged an impromptu cease-fire on the battlefields of France in 1914 — this world-premiere commission tells the story of the truce through scenes, vignettes, live music and song, letters and documents from the period, and other historical accounts. The play extends to audiences the Christmas wish of so many who fought and died in all wars: that mankind may one day lay down his weapons and, in the true spirit of the season, be proponents of Peace on Earth, and Goodwill toward Men.
 

PRAISE FOR OUR PRODUCTION

“It’s anti-war, but still pro-soldier. And deeply human. Remarkable.” – Dave Chandler
