PFLAG Gaston presents 'The Laramie Project' Comments
PFLAG Gaston (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) is proud to present The Laramie Project, a drama in three acts.� The play is written by Mois�s Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project.
The Laramie Project is the retelling of events surrounding the death of Matthew Shepard in 1998.� Matthew, a college student, who was gay, was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left to die for 18 hours.� He died several days later in a hospital from traumatic brain injury.
The authors traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, interviewing residents of the small mid-western town.� It is from these first-hand accounts/interviews that the narrative was created.� The story is told in first person and deals with many topics � specifically those related to Matthew's beating, death and the trial of the two men who were found guilty of his murder.
Our cast includes: Blake Creasman, Heidi McQueen, Eric Perkins, Ashley Piercy, Adrienne Reece, Chris Turner, Karen Turner, and Kyley Underhill.� Jim Kellogg is the show's director.
The Laramie Project will be presented on August 3 at 7:30 p.m. and on August 4 at 2:30 p.m.� A dessert reception will be hosted prior to curtain.� The show will be held at Events on Main, Gastonia, North Carolina.
Tickets may be purchased for $5 from any cast member, members of PFLAG Gaston or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
