The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later at LTCC Nov 15-24

It’s been 15 years since the death of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student who was tortured and left for dead, tied to a fence in Laramie, Wyoming.

The horrible crime and how the community dealt with it was the focus of “The Laramie Project,” a theatrical production that came to LTCC’s Duke Theatre in 2010. In the years since the play’s creators first interviewed townspeople about their feelings, Matthew Shepard became an important icon in the fight for gay rights – a fight that has led to remarkable change in recent months. But how did the passing of time affect the town where the murder took place? And what of the two men found responsible for Shepard’s death?

That’s the premise behind “The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later,” a play that explores how a tragic event that became international news still haunts and shapes Laramie today. This 2008 theatrical production makes its debut at LTCC on Thursday, Friday, Saturday November 21, 22, 23, and Sunday Matinees on November 17 & 24, 2013.

For more information about this production, contact Theatre Arts instructor Susan Boulanger at (530) 541-4660 ext. 240, or e-mail boulanger@ltcc.edu
