40 COUNTRIES. 6 CONTINENTS. 1 MISSION: To Find the Most Extraordinary War Letters Ever Written November 6, 2015...Los Angeles, Calif...Lexikat Artists, in association with Chapman University, is proud to present the return of IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER on Wednesday November 11, at 7:30 pm at The Lobero Theatre 33 East Canon Perdio Street Santa Barbara 93101 The play is a moving, dramatic reading of real wartime letters by soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen, as well as their family members at home.

IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER was written by award-winning Author Andrew Carroll, is directed by John Benitz, and is based upon Carroll's bestselling books WAR LETTERS and BEHIND THE LINES. In 1998, Carroll launched a national initiative to honor U.S. troops, veterans, and their families by preserving their wartime letters. Since that time Carroll has traveled to 40 countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan, and has collected more than 100,000 previously unpublished letters (and now emails) from every conflict in American history. Media profiles about Carroll's efforts to preserve letters have been featured on major television programs like OPRAH and PBS American Experience and in everything from The New Yorker, TIME (cover story), and National Geographic to virtually every major newspaper in America. Along with WAR LETTERS and BEHIND THE LINES, Carroll also edited OPERATION HOMECOMING, which inspired the Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning PBS film of the same name.

IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER has been awarded a prestigious grant from The National Endowment for the Arts and a grant from Cal Humanities to help reach audiences around the country through a series of readings and performances. These letters are intimate, deeply personal portraits of the courage, sacrifice, and sense of duty that made this country.- Tom Brokaw (on WAR LETTERS) ABOUT THE SCHEDULE AND PRICING ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY!
