“All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914”

DEC 10th | Times Varyam | Alabama Shakespeare Festival

Dec. 10-29. A remarkable true story from the Western Front, Christmas, 1914. In a silence amid the combat, a soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Silent Night.” Relive an astounding moment in history when Allied troops and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate the holiday together, sharing food and drink, playing soccer and singing carols. This dramatic retelling weaves together firsthand accounts of 30 World War I soldiers with patriotic tunes, trench songs and Christmas carols. Visit www.asf.net for more information.
