All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

As the country heals from one of the most divisive presidential elections in modern history, The Playhouse will present Peter Rothstein’s musical All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, in collaboration with local men’s a cappella group The Marcsmen. Based on actual events that took place during World War I, All Is Calm tells the story of the English and German soldiers who emerged from their trenches into no man’s land on December 24, 1914. There, the soldiers exchanged gifts, sang Christmas carols and buried their dead. It was an unofficial Christmas truce frowned upon by officers, but one in which thousands of soldiers partook. Although the war would resume the following day and continue until the general armistice of November 1918, for the surviving soldiers, the Christmas truce of 1914 would be remembered as nothing short of miraculous.
