That's the name of Dustin Lance Black's new play, composed of transcripts from California's Prop 8 trial. A snippet:

BOIES: Let me try to make this question as simple as I can. Have any of the scholars that you have said you relied on said, in words or in substance, that permitting same-sex marriage will cause a reduction in heterosexual marriage? That’s “yes,” “no,” or “I don’t know.”
BLANKENHORN: I know the answer. I cannot answer you accurately if the only words I’m allowed to choose from is “yes” or “no.” I can give you my answer very briefly in one sentence.
JUDGE VAUGHN WALKER: If you know the answer, why don’t you share it with us?
BLANKENHORN: I would be happy to, but he is only permitting me to give “yes” and “no,” and I cannot do that and be accurate.
WALKER: He is giving you three choices, “yes,” “no,” “I don’t know.”
BLANKENHORN: But I do know. I do know the answer. . . . One sentence is all I’m asking for.
WALKER: All right. Let’s take a sentence. One sentence.
BLANKENHORN: Can you ask me the question again, please?
