World War I certainly has its share of plays and time-honored epics, but in searching the archives, we discovered an unexpected and delightful gem by renowned playwright and novelist, J.M. Barrie, of Peter Pan fame. Barrie wrote a collection of short one-act plays that he titled Echoes of the War. These inspirational reflections on war and its toll on the human condition are heart-wrenching, touching, witty, and, dare I say, sassy—a combination rarely found together and one that showcases a master at his best.

Theatre at Barton is delighted to offer this rarely performed collection of beautiful short plays in memory of all who fought for freedom and justice in World War I, and as tribute to those who continue that fight today.
