Lord Leebrick Theatre will be hosting a free public discussion at 4:30 pm Sunday, Nov. 18, following the 2:00 pm matinee showing of Next Fall. Basic Rights Oregon will be there to discuss the passage of Measure 74 in Washington and how it compares to the future of marriage equality in Oregon. “It’s interesting in light of what transpired in the election in terms of having the first forward motion in a popular vote on marriage equality,” Lord Leebrick Artistic Director Craig Willis says.
This discussion will be a warm up for a Feb. 10 reading of “8 The Play,” written by Acadamy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Land Black (Milk, J. Edgar), about Perry v. Brown – the case that held that California’s Proposition 8 was unconstitutional. Lord Leebrick will be coproducing the reading, performed by local actors and community members.
