Friday, Dec 25: All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914


On Dec. 24, 1914, on World War I's Western Front, Allied Forces and German soldiers called a truce. As history tells it, soldiers shouted "Merry Christmas!" across lines in their enemy's native languages and sang carols together. This true story is told in insightful detail in a production at Vortex Theatre, All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914. The play was produced in collaboration with Mother Road Theatre Company.
