This powerful play explores how the citizens of Laramie, Wyoming, dealt with the aftermath of the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student there. Through the voices of those interviewed, the play shows how attitudes towards homosexuality, religion, class, economics, and education were reflected through this hate crime. The play is not a re-enactment, but rather a portrait of this small western town — and a snapshot of the culture in the United States in 1998. This play contains adult language and subject matter. It is recommended WITH PARENTAL GUIDANCE for age 13 and older.

The Saturday night show is already SOLD OUT so make sure you get your tickets ahead of time! Fred Phelps' Clan is supposed to be protesting this Saturday too. MassResistance is trying to distance themselves from Fred's Baptist group but we all know they are one in the same only Fred is more truthful then they are. In fact last time Fred made an appearance in Massachusetts in 2005 and it was on behalf of Mad Dad David Parker and "The Laramie Project" in Newton. Brian was trying to distance himself from them then too!
