Collegeville, PA–Perkiomen Valley High School Drama Club & Gay-Straight Alliance, with license from the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact, are proud to announce a one-night-only reading of 8, a play chronicling the historic trial in the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8, written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter and AFER Founding Board Member Dustin Lance Black.
8 is an unprecedented account of the Federal District Court trial in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Hollingsworth v. Perry), the case filed by AFER that successfully overturned Proposition 8 and restored the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples in California.
Black, who penned the Academy Award-winning feature films Milk and J. Edgar, based 8 on the actual words of official trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families.
One-Night-Only Staged Reading – April 17th at 7pm
Free Admission – Tickets available at the door or Map It)
