The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. In a silence amid the combat, a soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Silent Night.” All is Calm relives 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 WWI soldiers with patriotic tunes, trench songs, and Christmas carols.

Nine men bring to life the incredible story of camaraderie and peace in time of war. Told through music and excerpts from letters of the men who lived it, All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 is a moving Christmas story like no other. There are moments of joy, humility, tears, and laughter in this fabulous collaboration with Boise Contemporary Theater.
