WGN's Dean Richards and Megan Cavanagh (A League of Their Own, Scrooge & Marley) lead a cast of 21 in a one-night-only staged-reading performance of "8"—a play by Academy-award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar), Sunday March 10 at 7:30 p.m. at The Arts Center of Oak Park, 200 N. Oak Park Ave in Oak Park.

Presented by The Oak Park Area Lesbian & Gay Association (OPALGA) in collaboration with 16th Street Theater, Oak Park Festival Theatre and Circle Theatre, "8" demystifies the debate around marriage equality by chronicling the landmark trial of Perry v. Schwarzenegger. Using actual court transcripts from the federal trial challenging California's Proposition 8 and first-hand interviews, "8" shows both sides of the debate in a moving 90-minute play.

Directed by 16th Street Theater's Artistic Director Ann Filmer, "8" features a cast of Chicago's finest actors including Amy Matheny, Patricia Kane, Benjamin Sprunger and Ed Dzialo as the plaintiffs; with Megan Cavanagh (A League of Their Own) as Maggie Gallagher, Keith Kupferer as David Blankenhorn and Dean Richards as Judge Walker. Full cast list (below) and bios at www.16thstreettheater.org/seasonSix/8.html .
