Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel?s 2012 musical A Civil War Christmas weaves together a range of different stories in 1864 Washington, D.C., on the coldest Christmas Eve in recent memory. President and Mrs. Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth, Ely Parker, Mary Surratt, and Clara Barton join a cast of over fifty characters to craft a tale of holidays, home, and heart. Told through a mixture of dialogue and traditional Christmas and Civil War music, A Civil War Christmas speaks to our shared humanity and the importance of community.

A skirmish on a school playground results in a loss of teeth and bruised egos. As two sets of parents gather to resolve the conflict initiated by their children, the guise of civility threatens to dissolve in a rage of primal instinct. Yazmina Reza?s 2006 play invites audiences into this lively living room, inside these modern marriages, to witness the ensuing chaos.
