A new play chronicling the Federal trial for marriage equality
The Drama Club and Rainbow Alliance present "8" the play.
Uncover the truth about marriage for gay and lesbian Americans. "8"—a new play by Academy-award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar)—demystifies the debate around marriage equality by chronicling the landmark trial of Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Hollingsworth v. Perry). Learn about the historical context of marriage from expert testimony. See the human cost of discrimination. Uncover the arguments used to justify bans on marriage for gay and lesbian couples. Using the actual court transcripts from the landmark federal trial of California's Prop. 8 and first-hand interviews, "8" shows both sides of the debate in a moving 90-minute play.
Two One-Day-Only Staged Readings, directed by Trish Schneltz, will be presented on May 2, 2013, at the Rocklin Campus, Dietrich Theater, located at 5000 Rocklin Rd, Rocklin, CA 95677.
