Play with music. Weaves a rich tapestry of a beleaguered and divided nation, war-weary and desperate for goodwill, on a blustery Christmas Eve 1864.



Casting Director's note: "All roles are truly ensemble roles and everyone will not only play their own character but also help create scenery, atmosphere, as well as playing a host of other characters. While there will be singing in the show, this is not a musical and the actors do not need to be incredibly strong singers. Strong physicality required."
