Sinclair Theatre will present the drama, The Laramie Project, May 18–26 at Blair Hall Theatre, Building 2, on Sinclair's downtown Dayton campus.
The play, by Moisés Kaufman and Members of The Tectonic Theater Project and directed by Scott Stoney, is a powerful portrait of one town's healing in the aftermath of tragedy. Five weeks after Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, beaten and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming, members of the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to the small town to begin a series of more than 200 interviews with its residents. The result was The Laramie Project, a poignant play that showcases man's capacity for both brutal intolerance and breathtaking compassion.
Cast includes: (from left) Matt Turner, Matthew Smith, Angela Dermer, Robb Willoughby, Rachel Wilson, John Ray and Chris Hammond. Also (kneeling) Cydnie Hampton and John Dunn
