Penn students will be presenting a staged reading of Dustin Lance Black’s “8 the Play” this Friday at 7:00PM in the Platt Student Performing Arts House. Movie nerds may recognize Lance Black as the oscar-winning screenwriter of Milk. Please join us following the performance for a talkback with several Philadelphia area panelists discussing LGBT issues and the power of theatre to affect change in the community.
The talkback will be moderated by Adrian Shanker, the President of Equality Pennsylvania. The other panelists are Rich Rubin (the producer of Plays and Players’ GayFest Theatre Festival), Bob Schoenberg (head of the LGBT Center on campus), and Peter Reynolds (member of Mauckingbird Theatre Company).
It’s a one night only performance, so don’t miss out!
Oh, and here’s a facebook event for the tech-savvy at-risk youth that need that sort of thing.
