Our Friends, The Enemy

Our Friends, The Enemy
The Western Front, Christmas 1914: lights appear from the German trenches, ghosts rise behind the horizon, soldiers meet between the firing lines. The events which follow are the most astounding stories of the Great War told through the eyes of one soldier, Private James Boyce: Were fighting the same enemy, just on two different sides. Boyce takes us on a magical, haunting journey through the events surrounding the Christmas truce.

Our Friends, The Enemy is a debut solo show combining theatre and spoken word to tell the story of the Christmas truce from the First World War.
