Friday evening only, local company Theater Sans Serif will offer a staged reading of Dustin Lance Black’s “8”
This script, based upon the real life events surrounding the testing if Proposition 8 is Constitutional. This proposition called for California to disallow gay marriage. This fundamental right is being denied to our LGBT brothers and sisters, and as a result, Theatre Sans Serif is holding this reading to both raise awareness for the issue, and to fully announce our support for the cause. Directed by Kelsey Rispin, this phenomenal cast will bring this issue home to Pittsburgh, and at an especially important time, as this case is due to be seen by the Supreme Court on the Monday following.
The reading will take place at the Hillman Center for the Performing Arts in Fox Chapel at 8 PM. Immediately after, the cast and other local figures will participate in a discussion with the audience. Admission is free, but registration by email is required: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The company is accepting donations to offset the expenses of the performance.
