Playreading Series: ‘If All The Sky Were Paper’

November 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


In honor of Veterans’ Day, HRTC will present a staged reading of ‘If All The Sky Were Paper’ by Andrew Carroll.

The timing is particularly meaningful because the play is based on letters sent home by soldiers dating from to the American Revolution to modern day emails from Iraq and Afghanistan. It is a powerful look at war and its effect on the people serving and their families at home.

The playwright, Andrew Carroll, is the Founding Director of the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. It all started when his cousin sent Andrew a letter he uncovered in storage that the cousin had written and sent home during WWII after having visited a concentration camp. Since then, Andrew has collected hundreds of thousands more, mostly the original letters, that share pieces of history in their observations. Rating: PG-15.

Tickets start at $20 and are available at ticketcenterstage.com.

Prior to the event HRTC subscribers may pay $15 per ticket; the day of the event, all tickets are $20. Group discounts are available for parties of 10 or more.
