Skidmore College Department of Theater presents IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER by Andrew Carroll, directed by Lary Opitz. In every American war from the Revolutionary War to Iraq and Afghanistan, people have captured the horror, pathos and intensity of warfare in their letters. Tens of thousands of these letters have been handed down from generation to generation. Best-selling author Andrew Carroll established the Legacy Project through which he has collected thousands of war letters. He created this piece of verbatim theater based upon many of these letters. IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER tells the story of war from the viewpoint of the men and women on the front lines, affected civilians, and loved ones on the home front.
Performances are in the mainstage of the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater, April 10-13 and April 17-19. Performances are at 8:00PM, except for Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00PM. Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 for seniors and students. Call the Skidmore Theater Box Office at 518-580-5439 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
