In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a gay college student at the Univversity of Wyoming in Laramie, was tied to a fence, brutally beaten and left for dead. By the following day, Matthew’s attack and the town of Laramie drew international focus. Six days later, he died. Five weeks later, members of Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie and conducted interviews with people from the town, resulting a "The Laramie Project," a script which received national and international acclaim. In 2008, the Tectonic team returned to Laramie to do further interviews, resulting in this epilogue, which illuminates long-term effects on the town, how people have progressed, or not, and how new narratives may discard factual evidence. Intended for mature audiences.
