Kingsbury Hall to show Laramie play

By Evan Frank

Friday, Kingsbury Hall, along with Plan-B Theatre, will present a preview performance of a new play by Moisés Kaufman, titled “The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, An Epilogue.” In February 2000, Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project debuted “The Laramie Project,” which is about the reaction to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student, in Laramie, Wyo.

The new play focuses on the long-term effects the murder of Shepard has had on Laramie.
It explores the changes the community of Laramie has gone through, as well as the lasting effects the murder produced.

The play features new interviews with Matthew’s mother, Judy Shepard and Matthew’s murderers, Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney.

Several members of Plan-B Theatre’s 2001 production will be performing in this rendition, which will take place during the U’s Gay Pride Week.

“The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, An Epilogue” will be performed in all 50 states and in 100 other theaters.
