      EVENT DETAILS
      "8" The Play presented by the Oak Park Area Lesbian {e_name}amp; Gay Association

      "8" is an unprecedented account of the Federal District Court trial in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Perry v. Brown), the case filed by AFER to overturn Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry. Dustin Lance Black, who penned the Academy Award-winning feature film Milk and the film J. Edgar, based "8" on the actual words of the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families. The Oak Park Area Lesbian {e_description}amp; Gay Association, based in Oak Park, IL, is excited to collaborate on their production with three area theater companies, 16th Street Theater based in Berwyn, IL along with Circle Theatre and Oak Park Festival Theatre based in Oak Park, IL. The stage reading will be directed by Ann Filmer. She is the Artistic Director for 16th Street Theater.


      Cost: 10.00 to 20.00
