A benefit reading of Andrew Carroll's If All The Sky Were Paper will be presented June 7 at 7:30 PM at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City, California.
The play, a dramatic reading of real wartime letters by soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen, as well as their family members, will feature Annette Bening, Dan Lauria, Ken Jenkins (replacing the previously announced James Caan), and Kate Mansi.
Directed by John Benitz and produced by Victoria Morris of Lexikat Artists, the play features letters from Carroll’s two New York Times best sellers, War Letters and Behind the Lines.
This performance of If All the Sky Were Paper coincides with historian Carroll’s current nationwide initiative, “Million Letters Campaign,” to preserve at least one million war-related correspondences from every conflict in U.S. history, from handwritten missives penned during the American Revolution to emails sent from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Running time is 80 minutes, and the performance will be followed by a reception with the director, writer, and actors.
Tickets to the play can be purchased by visiting centertheatregroup.org or by calling (213) 972-4488.
