About The Show

In November 1998, 10 New Yorkers, set out for Laramie, Wyoming, to explore a town and a crime that occured there. Over the next year, they conducted interviews with more than 200 residents of Laramie. The result is a deeply moving play about bigotry and tolerance, fear and courage, hate and hope."

Matthew Shepard was a 21 year old student at the University of Wyoming in Laramie when a brutal attack transformed him into a national symbol. His death became a rallying point in the struggle for tolerance and against hate.
