years after the brutal and senseless murder of gay university student
Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming, this dramatic chronicle of the
incident continues to be received as a significant work of American
theatre. . . Moises Kaufman and his company set out to investigate the
death of Shepard by asking the people of Laramie to speak in their own
voices about what occurred and how it impacted them as individuals and
a community. . . .
The actors of The Western
Stage under Selover's direction present a moving and committed version
of the show... [There are] local theatre names you might recognize in
the cast . . . Selover has gathered and fine tuned an excellent
ensemble. Each member of which works with and for the whole — dedicated
to the realization of Kaufman's remarkable vision . . . This is a rare
and courageous work.
