NEW YORK (AP) - A new play about the battle over same-sex marriage in California by the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “Milk” is slated for a one-night-only reading on Broadway.
Dustin Lance Black’s play “8” about Proposition 8 will be performed for a fundraiser at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Sept. 19. Casting will be announced later.
Proposition 8 is the measure approved by California voters in 2008 that bans gay marriage in the state. A federal judge struck the law down last year. That ruling is being appealed.
The play, which is based on the trial transcript and interviews, will be directed by Tony Award-winning actor and director Joe Mantello.
Black won the Oscar for his biopic of gay-rights pioneer Harvey Milk.
