Shea King as plaintiff witness Ryan Kendall
According to the American Federation for Equal Rights stipulations, the performance is a staged reading. “Actors will have scripts in hand,” Rebik said, “but there is movement and interaction—it’s not just people reading from scripts propped up on music stands. The emphasis is on the words—the testimony, the closing arguments—everything we didn’t get to see.”

“We’ve set the ticket price at only $5 to encourage people to come to the show, and to promote that community involvement,” Rebik said. All proceeds will be donated to AFER.

  There will be a discussion with a panel and the audience after the approximately 90 minute performance. The panel is headed by Richard Bruce, Administrative Support Coordinator for the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and campus advisor to the Queer Student Union.

“This reading is held the week of our Campus Dialogue on Race, when we try to bring issues of exclusion and disenfranchisement to the forefront ” Rebik added. “This is one of those issues.”
