New play about gay marriage ban to get on Broadway
New play about gay marriage ban legal fight to be performed on Broadway in September
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A new play about the battle over same-sex marriage in California by the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "Milk" is slated for a one-night-only reading on Broadway.

Dustin Lance Black's play "8'' about Proposition 8 will be performed for a fundraiser at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Sept. 19. Casting will be announced later.

Proposition 8 is the measure approved by California voters in 2008 that bans gay marriage in the state. A federal judge struck the law down last year. That ruling is being appealed.



The play, which is based on the trial transcript and interviews, will be directed by Tony Award-winning actor and director Joe Mantello.

Black won the Oscar for his biopic of gay-rights pioneer Harvey Milk.
