[A] staged-reading of “8,” a new play chronicling the historic trial in the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8,... in partnership with Raleigh Little Theatre. Admission is free, but tickets are required. In 2008, voters in California passed Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state. In 2010, that amendment was ruled unconstitutional in the historic Perry vs. Schwarzenegger trial. Combining trial testimony and interviews with the participants, “8” explores both sides of the debate surrounding marriage equality. A cast of professional actors, students and community members will tackle this controversial issue in a reading of the play written by Dustin Lance Black (“Milk,” “J Edgar”)."
Free - reservations required.
