THE LARAMIE PROJECT
16th, 17th (matinee only), 21st, 23rd September - 8pm (3pm matinée)
In 1998 Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence, beaten, and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming - the victim of a homophobic hate crime that left the small town reeling.
THE LARAMIE PROJECT: 10 YEARS LATER
17th, 18th (matinee only), 22nd, 24th September - 8pm (3pm matinée)
This part takes place ten years later and shows how the Laramie community dealt with it.
These two full-length plays can be appreciated individually or together – the first deals with the immediate aftermath of the crime and the trial, while '10 Years Later' features the long-lasting impact of the crime on the town and the US as well as interviews with the killers and Matthew's mother.
N.B. You will need to book for each play separately.
