News   Mamie Gummer Stars in New Play Based on Soldiers' Letters
 
Actual letters written by American troops and their loved ones form the basis of If All the Sky Were Paper, premiering May 21-22 at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater as part of its celebration of Memorial Day.

Mamie Gummer and Gary Cole star in Andrew Carroll's drama, directed by John Benitz.

Tickets for the two 7:30 PM performances go on sale 10 AM March 23 to Kennedy Center members, and 10 AM April 1 for the general public. They can be purchased online, by phone at (202) 467-4600, or in-person at the box office.

The play—which takes its title from a 14-year-old Polish boy’s poem that was smuggled out of a Nazi concentration camp—is based on playwright Andrew Carroll’s best-selling books, "War Letters and Behind the Lines," which includes letters to and from soldiers in 40 countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan.
