Three Quarter Inches of Sky
by Playwrights’ Center Core Writer Sherry Kramer
David Copperfield begins, “Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life…these pages must show.” Dickens’ novel is the story of a young boy at the beginning of his life. Three Quarter Inches of Sky is the story of Trula, a woman of a certain age, near the end of her life. How will she answer that question, in the time allotted? How will she measure what being the hero of her story is, as she cares for her fading father, whose memory is going, and searches through her own memories for a way to understand her life? A play filled with a childhood that may or may not be true, a lot of movie references, and 7 chicken pot pies. Part of the Ruth Easton New Play Series.
