Since premiering in a one-night only all-star reading on Broadway in 2011, “8” The Play has been performed all over the country to wide acclaim. It speaks to issues which are not just about California or about gay rights. It discusses human rights and equality. The play is written in the style of verbatim theatre using transcripts from the federal trial, journalist records and media interviews from the plaintiffs, defendancts and proponents involved.
This reading of “8” The Play features community leaders, professional and local actors and is directed by Arkansas Repertory Theatre Producing Artistic Director Bob Hupp.
There will be a pre-show reception at 6:30pm. The performance starts at 7pm. Following the performance, there will be a post-show discussion led by Just Communities of Arkansas.
Tickets are $20 and are available at the Arkansas Rep box office in person, by phone (501-378-0405) or online at www.therep.org.
