'8' The Play

George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Martin Sheen lead an all-star cast in a powerful portrait of an American civil rights struggle, written by Dustin Lance Black and directed by Rob Reiner.

In November 2008, California's Proposition 8 stripped the freedom to marry away from gay and lesbian couples. Then, two of the nation's most renowned attorneys, with the support of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, joined forces to challenge Proposition 8 under the United States Constitution. "8" faithfully recreates the progression of the historic 2010 federal trial through original court transcripts and interviews conducted with the plaintiffs, as their stories are brought to life before a live audience.
