Directed by Dr. Dean Yohnk

Matthew Wayne Shepard was a gay college student at the University of Wyoming who was beaten, tortured, and left to die on a fence near Laramie on the night of October 6, 1998. This brutal gay hate crime galvanized people from various perspectives across the nation and world and brought attention to the need for hate crime legislation at the state and federal levels. Now, 20 years later, we consider the lasting impact of Shepard’s murder and its aftermath in this new staged reading with an original epilogue.
