CT Rep Reading of "The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later"

7:30pm – 9:00pm

Storrs Campus
Nafe Katter Theatre

In 1998, following the brutal murder of of University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard, members of the Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie, WY and conducted interviews with the people in the town. What emerged was a powerful play, chronicling the life of the town in the year after the murder. Ten years later, five members of Tectonic returned to Laramie to try to understand the long-term effect of the murder. What they found was a town struggling with its identity and place in history. They also spoke with the two murderers, Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson, and Matthew’s mother, Judy Shepard. This companion piece to The Laramie Project asks “How does society write its own history?”
