Oregon Shakespeare Festival Play Reading “8” by Dustin Lance Black
Sunday, August 5, 12 at 8:30 pm in the New Theatre
“8” is based on court transcripts and interviews and chronicles the historic 2010 federal court case Perry vs. Schwarzenegger, which sought to overturn Proposition 8. The reading has renewed relevance in light of the recent decision on February 7, 2012, when a federal appeals court overturned Proposition 8, ruling that Californians took away a right from a minority group without justification when they approved the 2008 ban on same-sex marriage. The reading is among those sponsored by American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact.
All tickets for this reading are $5.00 and will be donated to AFER. To order tickets, click the date of the play reading on calendar to the right or call 800–219-8161.
