In 2020, the UC Merced World Arts Program contacted award-winning historian, author and playwright Andrew Carroll for permission to play his play “If All the Sky Were Paper”.
The students got the green light, but then the pandemic happened and forced the student production to cancel.
But now, the project is back and the man behind it made the trip to Merced.
Action News was there as Carroll met with local veteran Jesus Deniz.
Carol collects mail from the battlefield – including letters and emails from all eras.
Jesus shared some of his own from his time in Iraq.
His passion for sharing the stories of the members of the service is what inspired “If All the Sky Were Paper”.
Carroll says he was thrilled by the UC Merced students who uploaded the project.
You can watch “If All the Sky Were Paper” on Friday at 19:30 or Sunday at 14:00 at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center.
