Catch Dustin Lance Black's 8 at Lambda Literary

Have you seen Dustin Lance Black's 8, the powerful play about Proposition 8? Neither had I till Lambda Literary posted it on their website. There's one reason in particular I recommend this article: forgetting the marvellous writing and fantastic casting, this is the only account of what happened in the Prop 8 court case in California. Those who wished to ban gay marriage also successfully lobbied to ban any filming in the courtroom. So this is the only way you can find out what went on in the courtroom (short of pouring over court transcripts) and why the case was won.

Watch a full-length reading of the play here. The top-notch acting talent includes stars George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Martin Sheen, and Chris Colfer.
