Manchester Open Air Theatre - The Christmas Truce

THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE

Carol Ann Duffy’s celebrated poem ‘Christmas Truce’ depicts the fabled moment soldiers in The Great War downed arms to play football together.

AKA North were briefed to produce key art for the Manchester Open Air Theatre's Christmas production. By incorporating graphic elements, including lines from the poem itself, we were able to convey the opposing themes of war and peace, bleakness and hope that the poem explored.
