The Laramie Project

Fri 24 & Sat 25 Jun, 7.30pm (2 hrs 15) Scottish Storytelling Centre , Netherbow Theatre

This show is based on a true story. It is October 1998; Matthew Sheppard is savagely beaten and left to die overlooking the town of Laramie, Wyoming. Two locals are accused of the crime. This play documents the town’s response to the attack whilst exploring themes of hope, love, hate and sexuality. In this production by Edinburgh Acting School, the actors work as an ensemble to take on this sad event and shed some light on what really happened that fateful night and how attitudes have changed since.

Tickets: Full Price – £8.00 , Concession £6.00.
