Description

OCT 7 - performances at 2pm and 7pm

This play was inspired by the reaction to the 1998 murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming. The play draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by the Tectonic Theatre Company with inhabitants of the town, company members' own journal entries, and published news reports. Ten actors portray more than sixty characters in a series of short scenes.

$17 Adult, $15 AppState Faculty/Staff, $10 Student/Child
