8--A Play About Marriage Equality Come out for an historic event, a staged reading of "8", a new documentary play by Dustin Lance Black about the federal case for marriage equality, with a cast composed of WOU's theater and LGBT community. "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. 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. Following the performance, we will host a Q and A with advocates for marriage equality and learn more about the 2014 fight to achieve marriage equality in Oregon.
