On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard's death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of Laramie the event was deeply personal, and it's they we hear in this stunningly effective theater piece, a deeply complex portrait of a community.

Without a doubt one of the most touching and moving stories I have read. The simplistic format of the play makes the reader really tune into the situation and feel for the town of Laramie and the Sheppard family.
