The Laramie Project tells the story of a town's response to the murder of Matthew Shepard. On October 6, 1998, Shepard was brutally beaten, tied up and left to die, simply for being gay. The event drew worldwide attention to the many anti-gay homicides occuring every year. It also caused the town of Laramie to confront its own prejudice in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Shepard's mother, Judy Shepard, will speak prior to the performance on July 10. She will also autograph copies of her new book, The Meaning of Matthew: My Son's Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed.
