The Old Lyme Players will be performing Moises Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project’s, The Laramie Project, on November 15 and 16. The show itself is a collection of real interviews the Tectonic Theater Project collected over a two year period and their some of their own journal entries, then pulled them together to tell not only the story about the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming, but also how the residents and the town itself were viewed by the world and how they wrestled with their own identity.
It is a show meant to generate emotions, sometimes not always positive, but with the purpose of reflection about who people are and how society may view them. It is a show performed with the intent to ask us to evaluate our ideas of tolerance and acceptance within our own communities and the world.
The Auditorium doors of Lyme-Old Lyme High School will open at 7:00pm. In lieu of a traditional admission, the cast has agreed to ask for donations only. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Matthew Sheppard Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by Dennis and Judy Sheppard, Matthew’s parents, to run education, outreach, and advocacy programs.
