The Laramie Project
In 1998, Matthew Shepard was beaten and tied to a fence in Laramie, Wyoming, dying 6 days later. A month after the murder, members of Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie and conducted interviews with town residents about the anti-gay hate crime, culminating in The Laramie Project, a play they wrote and adapted into a film for HBO. At Fullerton College on Wednesday, the film will be screened and followed by a discussion by FC Director Chuck Ketter (who will also be directing staged readings of the play The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later in October) and FC students to provide truth and context as this piece of American history is retold to new generations.
