An unconstitutional proposition.
An unprecedented decision.
An all-star cast.

Starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Martin Sheen, 8 is written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar) and directed by acclaimed actor and director Rob Reiner.

The play is a powerful account of the case filed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) in the U.S. District Court in 2010 to overturn Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Framed around the trial's historic closing arguments in June 2010, 8 provides an intimate look what unfolded when the issue of same-sex marriage was on trial.

    " I think this was a play before it was turned into book form? Or was it the other way around? Short but good read on the fight for marriage equality in the state of California. Got a few tears during some of the testimonies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jason Laipply | 3/9/2013

    " A short play about the court case that struck down California Proposition 8 (the statute banning gay marriage) upon appeal. All-star cast reading from actual court transcripts and testimony. Most excellent. . . "

    " A simple, clearly written play that explains all the issues surrounding Proposition 8 with humor, passion, love and common sense. "
