10/12: The Laramie Project



After Matthew Shepard was beaten, tied to a fence and left to die, playwright Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Company conducted interviews with Laramie, Wyoming, residents to gather their reaction to the hate crime. Almost a decade after they staged The Laramie Project, Kaufman returned to the town to see how views toward gay people have changed. Around 150 venues across the country are giving readings of the play with its new epilogue this week. Tri-C hosts one of them, which also includes a pre-show discussion with local gay groups and an online introduction by Kaufman. It starts at 7:30 p.m. at Pilgrim Congregational Church (2592 W. 14th St., 216.987.4444). Tickets: $10-$15. — Michael Gill
