If the Sky were Paper

 40 COUNTRIES. 6 CONTINENTS. 1 MISSION: To Find the World’s Most Extraordinary War Letters ..... In honor of Veterans Day, the Lobero Theatre presents a compelling drama about the wartime experience, taken from actual letters penned by troops and their loved ones. This performance is a humorous, poignant and moving evening of wartime letters from American soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen and their loved ones at home, brought to life in a new play.
   Written by award winning author Andrew Carroll and is based upon his New York Times bestselling books WAR LETTERS and BEHIND THE LINES, “If All The Sky Were Paper” is based on a vast collection of wartime letters by soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen and their loved ones at home. From the incredible drama of the human experience in battle to the pathos and humor of everyday life on the front and the home front, audiences will be moved and inspired by the correspondence of those caught up in the American Revolution, Civil War, World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan. 
   Carroll’s books include the bestsellers Letters of a Nation, War Letters and Behind the Lines. Carroll also edited Operation Homecoming, which inspired the Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning PBS documentary of the same name. 
   The performance will benefit the local chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, which provides a variety of services to our veterans.
