Please be advised this piece contains strong language and mature themes. Not recommended for children below the high school level.

On October 7th, 1998, a young man was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intelerance, but for the people of Laramie the event was deeply personal, and it is their voices we hear in this stunningly effective piece of theater.
