  1. Thought you might be interested to learn about The Dreamscape Theatre’s upcoming production of “In Fields Where They Lay” – a play with music telling the story of the 1914 Christmas Truce in the words of the men who lived it.

    We’ll be producing the play in NYC this December to commemorate the centennial of the Truce and we’re looking to spread the word. Here’s what the NYTimes had to say when the play was first presented in 2009: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/24/theater/reviews/24fields.html?_r=0

    Right now we’re trying to raise funds for the production through a matching grant campaign. Any help you can provide in spreading the word would be a huge benefit. We’ll gladly direct our fans and supporters to your page as well. Our audiences are very hungry for more history to contextualize the play!
