Central Wyoming College is the only venue in Wyoming to see the reading of 8, a play about California’s Proposition 8, which eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry.
Twenty-two student and community actors read the play by Dustin Lance Black, who won the Academy Award for Milk, in CWC’s Robert A. Peck Arts Center Theatre at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, March 3.
Local casts in every state in the country and several foreign countries are reading the play this spring, said CWC Theater Director Mike Myers. He was contacted by the playwright’s agent last August to see if CWC was interested in taking part in a global effort to bring the closing arguments of Perry v. Schwarzengger to the public. The reading is followed by a “talk back” discussion, moderated by Ernie Over.
