The Laramie Project

Wednesday, May 3

Athens High School along with ABC Players and ARTS/West Presents brings a staged reading of The Laramie Project to ARTS/West on May 3rd at 7:30pm. The play, written by Moisés Kaufman and the members of the Tectonic Theater Project, is based on the true story of the hate crime and trial of Matthew Shepard. The play features portraits of the community’s response to the murder in what has been called the modern Our Town. This event shined a light on the lack of protection laws against hate crimes in Wyoming and the United States.
