Caplin Theater
IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER by Andrew Carroll '88

To reserve tickets, visit:

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. Bestselling author, Andrew Carroll, established the Legacy Project through which he has collected thousands of war letters. IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER tells the story of one man's search to find powerful and revealing American and foreign war letters -- as written by the women and men on the front lines, affected civilians and loved ones on the home front.

This performance has general seating. Due to language and subject matter, audience discretion is advised.
