Matthew Shepard was killed because he was gay. Ten years after his brutal death, five members of Tectonic returned to Laramie, Wyoming to try to understand the long-term effect of the murder. They found a town wrestling with its legacy and its place in history. In addition to revisiting the folks whose words riveted us in the original play, this time around, the company also spoke with the two murderers, McKinney and Henderson, as well as Matthew’s mother, Judy Shepard. THE LARAMIE PROJECT: TEN YEARS LATER is a bold work, which asks the question, “How does society write its own history?”
