An Act of Evil. A Story of Hope.
The Laramie Project is a documentary-style play created from interviews surrounding the murder of college student Matthew Shepard in 1998. Actors portray family, friends, acquaintances and bystander citizens of Laramie, Wyoming, giving a varied perspective on the death of the openly gay Shepard. The play examines the aftermath of a hate-crime and the ripple effects of such a tragedy.

SHOW YOU CARE
Join Edison Theatre Company in the Matthew Shepard Foundation Heart Challenge. We'll have paper hearts onsite at all performances for anyone interested. If you'd like to take more time, feel free to print out a heart at home, write something kind, and bring it to a performance. We'll have a fence in the theater lobby on which you can place your paper heart. #EraseHate
