All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

The McCallum Theatre presents All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914. Produced by Theater Latte Da of Minneapolis, this moving work captures an astounding moment in history when Allied and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate the holiday together by trading carols, sharing food and drink, playing soccer and burying the dead. Poetry, diary entries, official war documents and letters home are woven together with iconic World War I songs, patriotic tunes and European Christmas carols to create a truly unique and profound theatrical event.
