8, the Play
I AM ONE OF THE ACTORS ( SEBASTIANO GRASSO )
Join the Groves Cabin Theatre and a cast of talented community actors to examine the federal case against Proposition 8 in CA. The Grove’s Cabin Theatre in conjunction with Equality California and the Morongo Basin Foundation for Equal Rights will present a staged reading of “8”, a new play by Dustin Lance Black, based on this historic civil rights case for marriage equality. Black, an Academy Award-winning screen writer for the film Milk, is a lifelong LGBT rights activist. After each performance there will be a talkback session hosted by local marriage equality advocates. We hope that our presentation of this fact-based play will enlighten those who see it and create a better understanding of this fight that’s crucial to changing the hearts and minds for marriage equality in California.
