If All The Sky Were Paper at the Kennedy Center

The Kennedy Center presents If All the Sky Were Paper, in honor of Memorial Day, for two performances in the Terrace Theater on May 21 and 22, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Written by military historian and best-selling author Andrew Carroll, and directed by John Benitz, If All the Sky Were Paperis a compelling drama about the American wartime experience, that draws from letters penned by troops and their loved ones. Produced by Lexikat Artists and presented in association with Chapman University, the play features on stage performances by actress Mamie Gummer (Emily Owens, M.D.), actor Gary Cole (VEEP, Pineapple Express, Office Space), and more to be announced. There will be a post-show discussion on Friday, May 22 with members of the company, followed by a book signing by author Andrew Carroll.

Development and performances of the work have been supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and Cal Humanities’ Community Stories grant program.

A related exhibit, War Comes Home: The Legacy, supported by Cal Humanities and the California State Library, is currently traveling throughout California. Visit www.warletters.us for more information.
