The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, an Epilogue

Written by Moises Kaufman, Leigh Fondakowski, Greg Pierotti, Andy Paris, and Stephen Belber
Presented by Brown University

October 12, 2009
8:00 PM
Leeds Theatre

Free Admission
Suggested $3 donation
to benefit The Matthew Shepard Foundation and Brown's LGBTQ Resource Center.

In June 2008, members of Tectonic Theater Project returned to Laramie, Wyoming, to explore how the town had changed in the ten years since Matthew Shepard's murder. What they found defied their expectations. The result is a new play about how we construct our own history. This is the continuing story of an American Town.

On October 12, the 11th anniversary of Matthew Shepard's death, over 150 theatres across the country and around the world, including Brown University, will simultaneously present the world premiere reading of the epilogue. The presentation will include a live pre- and post-show from New York with the creators and Judy Shepard, hosted by Glenn Close.
