Theater, Fall Arts
One hundred years ago in the midst of World War I’s bloody trench battles, something unprecedented happened on the Western Front. In the days leading up to Christmas, the fighting stopped. Men on both sides, German and British, climbed out of the muddy ditches to sing carols, exchange gifts and even play a friendly game of football. The Christmas truce of 1914 was not ordered, and the unofficial cease-fire has remained one of the most symbolic moments in the long history of war and peace. Coeur d’Alene’s Modern Theater (formerly Lake City Playhouse) is one of a few select U.S. theaters chosen to present the historically based production this year.
