A Civil War Christmas

By Paula Vogel

Paperback £15.99

Set on a chilly Christmas eve during the latter days of the Civil War, Paula Vogel's pageant play for all seasons weaves a tapestry of both fictional and historical characters, such as President and Mrs. Lincoln - together with holiday music, marches, hymns and spirituals of the period - to tell a story of companionship and communal hope arising from one of America's darkest hours.

Paul Vogel's play with music A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration was first staged in this version at Long Wharf Theatre, Connecticut, in 2008.
