‘Defining Marriage’ comes to Cape library

“Defining Marriage” will be presented at Thomas Memorial Library in Cape Elizabeth on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 2 p.m.

York Readers Theater has performed the show since spring of this year at libraries and theaters across the state. The theatrical presentation explores the complexity of the marriage debate in an objective and unprejudiced way, being composed entirely of testimony from the 2010, Prop 8 trial in California. The show is an hour and includes videos of the campaign advertisements for and against Prop 8, the testimony of expert witnesses and lively debate between celebrated attorneys.

The York Diversity Forum and Maine Initiatives have funded a tour of “Defining Marriage” so that it may be performed in town halls, libraries, churches and local meeting places around the state. York Readers Theater is a community group of experienced performers committed to presenting thoughtful and provocative work. Admission is free.
