Truce: A Christmas Wish from the Great War, written by Kit Wilder & Jeffrey Bracco, and directed by Kit Wilder, had its world premiere on the City Lights stage in 2014. This moving play based on the real-life story of the World War I Christmas truce was such a hit that we’ve brought it back as a new radio play to warm you during a difficult season.

With select choral arrangements by George Psarras, and choral pieces performed by the Aragon Vocal Ensembles: Chamber Singers, Men’s Choir, Women’s Choir, directed by John Chen. Rehearsal Pianist & Vocals: Kevin Imbombo. Narration by Jeffrey Bracco.
