North Dakota Voices of the Great War
This play was a collaboration between the history and theater programs at the University of Mary. History students researched the World War I Scrapbooks Collections at the North Dakota State Archives consisting of four volumes and approximately 1,400 letters. These letters appeared in newspapers around the state from August 1918 through February 1919. Building on these letters, we created an original theatrical production, adding music and poetry from the Great War and improvising dramatic scenes based on the real letters. The collaboration between the theater and history students was beautiful to witness, and we believe they created a show with a very personal meaning for North Dakota.
