‘8’ @ Henry Clay Theatre

Just about a month after the Supreme Court’s decision to hear arguments regarding California’s Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Pandora Productions is presenting a staged reading of “8,” a play about the case that led to Prop 8 and everything that followed. Written by Dustin Lance Black (“Milk”), “8” is about the Perry vs. Brown Federal District Court trial and the case filed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights to overturn Prop 8. Black based his script on the trial transcripts, first-hand observations, courtroom drama, and interviews with plaintiffs and their families. “Not only is ‘8’ topical, it is a reminder to our core constituents that the fight is not over for equality on all levels, least of all marriage equality,” says Pandora artistic director Michael J. Drury. —Sara Havens
