Tonight is Opening Night for Harpeth Hall Playmakers' spring drama!
The Laramie Project By Moises Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theatre Project opens tonight in the Frances Bond Davis Theatre.
In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a college student was beaten to death in the small town of Laramie, Wyoming. The play is both a retelling of the events that transpired and a portrait of the residents and town of Laramie in the year following Matthew's murder. The Laramie Project deals with very serious subject matter in an honest and forthright manner. It contains descriptions of violence, discussions of the power of hate, and some adult language.
Cynthia M. Deitle, Matthew Shepard Foundation's Programs and Operations Director, will be present on opening night, February 27th, to see The Laramie Project and to moderate a conversation after the performance. Cynthia oversees hate crimes work, community outreach, and events. Prior to joining the Foundation in 2017, Cynthia was a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation for over 22 years specializing in the fields of civil rights, community outreach, and victims' assistance. We hope that you will stay after the show to talk with Cynthia and members of the cast and crew.
There is very limited seating. Due to its mature content, this production is recommended for an audience of high school and above only.
