In a Los Angeles Times exclusive, David Ng writes about the upcoming west coast premiere:
“’8,’ the work-in-progress play by screenwriter Dustin Lance Black that dramatizes the legal battle over Proposition 8, will make its Los Angeles debut March 3 in a staged reading directed by Rob Reiner.
“The play will be performed for one night only at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre.
“The production will serve as a fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights. Black and Reiner are founding board members of the advocacy organization, which has fought to overturn the controversial ballot initiative that outlawed same-sex marriage in California.”
