November 22nd, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's death. In Years of Sky, teenagers David, black, and Stace, white, meet on the grassy knoll to watch Kennedy pass by. They decide to spend their first night together - but history intervenes.
Years of Sky chronicles the doomed but enduring love of a biracial couple whose fate is bound to the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy and thirty years of American politics.

Scripts Up! is a not-for-profit NYC entity devoted to the development of new plays and playwrights. Well into its second decade, our primary goal is putting promising new work for the theatre ‘up’ on its feet for the very first time, spare but complete, with short runs in front of an audience. Does it work? What does it need? Our development process then focuses on guiding the playwright with dramaturgical help and follow-up, often resulting in a more fully realized production such as this one of “Years of Sky”.
