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. Best selling author Andrew Carroll established the Legacy Project through which he has collected thousands of war letters. He created this piece of verbatim theater play based upon many of these letters. IF ALL THE SKY WERE PAPER tells the story of war from the viewpoint of the men and women in the front lines, affected civilians, and loved ones on the home front

"Will Eno is an original, a maverick wordsmith whose weird, wry dramas gurgle with grim humor and pain of life." - The Guardian.
"A preoccupation with cosmic quandries - and with the pain and lonliness that often mark human existence - pervades the plays of Will Eno." - The Boston Globe

Called "a Samuel Beckett for the John Stewart generation" by the New York Times, In his trademark subversive style, Will Eno's work features a wide array of characters who populate Middletown.
