Rewriting history is a futile effort, but that didn’t stop the citizens of Laramie, Wyo., from attempting to get rid of the records of University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard’s murder, denounced as a hate crime because Shepard was gay. North Idaho College’s presentation of Tectonic Theatre Project’s The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later takes a look back at Shepard’s 1998 murder, showing the long-term effects it had on the small-town community. Originally intended to be an epilogue to The Laramie Project, its writers discovered the interviews were complex enough to warrant a separate play.
