Part of the Ruth Easton New Play Series.
Three Quarter Inches of Sky
by Playwrights’ Center Core Writer Sherry Kramer
The play is a meditation about memory—how we make it, how it makes us. It also is in conversation with our new technologically mediated selves. We are filled with vivid, tender, heartbreaking, exciting memories that aren’t actually ours, but look and feel like they are. We have an intimate relationship with wraiths. It’s changed the way we dream. It’s changed the way our dreams shape us. And it’s changed the world.

FROM SHERRY: “One of the mysteries I’ve been trying to understand my whole life is how the small is so big in our lives. Folded into that mystery is my longing to sing about the mythic ways compassion and care make heroes of a hundred million people every day. Add in my fascination with our new primal—and often primary—relationship with the vivid lives we co-inhabit when we turn our gaze to our screens? That’s this play.” Read an interview with Sherry »
The Playwrights' Center is wheelchair-accessible. There is an accessible parking space in the lot behind our building (enter off of 23rd Avenue S). For our public readings, there is always a staff member stationed at the back door to assist guests with the elevator, starting an hour before the reading time. Large print programs will be available at the box office. You do not need to request these in advance. If you would like the program text emailed to you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our readings offer a different experience for people with vision loss than productions, in that they are unstaged, and most of the stage directions are read aloud. For questions about accessibility please contact Alayna Barnes at (612) 332-7481 or email@example.com.
