THEATER, DANCE, & PERFORMANCES

"8"

Thursday, January 3 - Saturday, January 5, 7:30 p.m.

The Henry Clay Theatre, 604 South Third Street, 3rd Floor

$18

The story for "8", by Dustin Lance Black who penned the Academy Award-winning feature film Milk, is all about the case filed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) to overturn Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry. 

Black based his work on actual words of the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families; it is framed by the trial's historic closing arguments in June 2010 and features the best arguments and testimony from both sides.

Tickets are now available online at http://www.PandoraProds.org or by phone at 502.216.5502.

A portion of the production's proceeds will go to the American Foundation for Equal Rights.
