REGIONAL PREMIERE! Based on the astonishing true story of the 1914 Christmas Truce during World War I, when British and German soldiers stopped fighting
from the trenches to celebrate the beloved holiday together. As Shani Friedman writes, “the brutalities of war, and the power of brotherhood and the
Christmas spirit to achieve peace, are given vivid life in this moving show.” New play written 2015.
