Beyond the Page Theatre Company at West Potomac High School (6500 Quander Rd., Alexandria, Va.) presents “8,” a play about the historic Proposition 8 trial, Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m.

The play chronicles both sides of the trial including highlights such as Proposition 8-supportive witness David Blankenhorn’s testimony. After the Saturday 7 p.m. performance there will be a talk-back with one of the plaintiffs, Kris Perry, and her son, Spencer. All proceeds from the show will benefit West Potomac’s Gay Straight Alliance.

Tickets are $5. For more information, visit westpotomactheatre.org.
