A Special Staged Reading Fundraiser
Perseverance Theatre takes pride in bringing inspirational and innovative art to Alaskans every year. This year, Perseverance and the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska (ACLU) together are supporting a staged reading of "8" the Play in Anchorage at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. Written by Dustin Lance Black, director, film and television producer, Oscar Award winning screenwriter of Milk starring Sean Penn, and avid LGBT activist, "8" is a dramatic portrayal of the Perry vs. Schwarzenegger trial leading to the overturn of Proposition 8 in California. A portion of the proceeds from this show will go to work supporting marriage equality. Please join us with your support this October. Following the performance, please stay for a Q&A with Perseverance’s "8" cast and marriage equality advocates.
