Lisa Cordes "Prop 8 on Trial" interview by Mel Neet
In February of this year, playwright Lisa Cordes presented Prop 8 on Trial, a performance piece using the transcripts and news coverage of the Proposition 8 trial in California, which began January 11, 2010. On August 4, the trial resulted in the ruling by Judge Walker that Prop 8 was unconstitutional. The journey of Prop 8 on Trial, however, was just beginning. Cordes, a recent recipient of the Rocket Grant and an ArtsKC Inspiration grant, will stage a leaner, meaner version of Prop 8 on Trial September 18 at Lawrence Arts Center (which will be part of their New Play Series), and the following week at the Fishtank.
