10/10 - THE DOWNEASTER THEATRE - “THE LARAMIE PROJECT: 10 YEARS LATER” READING
The Downeaster Theatre will bring “The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later” to its own stage, 1120 N Pennsylvania Ave, Lansing, MI 48906, for one night only, Wednesday, October 10, at 7pm.
Ten years after interviewing for and writing The Laramie Project, five members of the Tectonic Theatre Project return to Laramie, Wyoming, to try to understand the long-term effects of Matthew Shepard’s murder. They found a town wrestling with its legacy and its place in history.
“We opened our first season with The Laramie Project, so this production brings our first year full circle and celebrates Matthew Shephard’s life near the 20th anniversary of his death,” said director Kathryn Willis.
This event is free to the public, with a $5 donation suggested. Visit http://www.thedowneastertheatre.comfor more information.
