The Miners Foundry and SisterStage Productions are holding auditions for “8” The Play throughout the month of August.
Uncover the truth about marriage for gay and lesbian Americans. “8”—a 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. 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.
