More About “8” the Play

Uncover the truth about marriage for American same-sex couples. “8”, a new play by Academy-award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk), puts a microscope to the marriage equality debate by chronicling the landmark trial of Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Hollingsworth v. Perry).

Hear expert testimony about the historical context of marriage. Uncover the arguments used to justify bans on marriage for gay and lesbian couples. See the human cost of discrimination. Using first-hand interviews and actual court transcripts from the landmark federal trial of California’s Prop. 8, the play “8” unforgettably portrays both sides of the debate.
