"8: The Play" Staged Reading on Prop 8 Trial


"8: The Play" Staged Reading on Prop 8 Trial


On November 28, at 6:30pm in the Boston University (BU) Law Auditorium, BU Law's OutLaw, Family Law Association, and Office of Student Affairs proudly presents a free, one-night-only staged reading of "8: The Play," by Dustin Lance Black, a dramatization of the Prop 8 trial.

This production features BU Law students, staff, and faculty; other Boston law students; BU undergraduate students; and professionals in the LGBTQ field. The production is *free* but donations will be accepted at the door for the American Foundation for Equal Rights.

The staged reading runs about 85 minutes with a talkback session immediately following the performance. A small panel of moderators will lead us in this discussion. Given the potential SCOTUS term, this play is a timely reflection on many of the legal and personal arguments supporting marriage equality.

Any questions can be sent to the play's director, Brian Balduzzi, at
