Wartime Letters Brought to Life at Playmakers
"If All the Sky Were Paper" by Andrew Carroll opens September 15 and runs for 10 performances through October 1, 2017. This compelling drama was created from Carroll's New York Times bestselling books, "War Letters" and "Behind the Lines," and features the best of his Legacy Project's never-before-seen letters. It was taken from actual letters penned by troops and their loved ones. From the incredible drama of the human experience in battle to the pathos and humor of everyday life on the war front and the home front, audiences have been moved and inspired by the correspondence of those caught up in the war experience. It is a moving evening of memories from American soldiers and their loved ones at home, from the American Revolution and Civil Wars to the two World Wars, Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan. It also includes letters from people from other countries caught up in wars.
"These letters are intimate, deeply personal portraits of the courage, sacrifice, and sense of duty that made this country." Tom Brokaw
"These war letters are more deeply moving, more revelatory, and more powerful that any dispatch from the front. It's the truly felt history of what war is all about." Studs Terkel
"In 1998, Carroll launched a national, all-volunteer initiative, the Legacy Project, which worked to find and preserve wartime correspondence. Carroll traveled to all 50 states and 40 countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan, to seek out what he calls "the world's great, undiscovered literature." He has collected more than 100,000 previously unpublished letters and emails from every conflict in U.S. history. He has edited a book of writings of the troops for the National Endowment for the Arts, "Operation Homecoming."
The play will continue on September 16, 19, 22, 23, 26, 30 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday matinees, September 17, 24 and Oct 1 at 2:00 p.m.
