Summary
"The play is a powerful account of the case filed by the American Federation 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."--Content Reserve web site.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Recorded in front of a live audience in Los Angeles, this full-cast, all-star production of Black's play chronicles the efforts of the American Federation for Equal Rights to overturn Proposition 8, the state constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in California. Directed by Rob Reiner and featuring outstanding performances from the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, John C. Reilly, and Jane Lynch (just to name a few), this audiobook provides an inside look at the historical trial that overturned Prop 8. Among the standout performances are Clooney and Sheen as attorneys David Bois and Theodore B. Olson, respectively, Lynch as the fiery Maggie Gallagher, and Pitt as evenhanded Chief Judge Vaughn Walker. Educational, affecting, funny, and absolutely gripping, this important audiobook should be required listening for all Americans. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
