On Oct. 6, 1998, gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard left the Fireside Bar with two other men. The following day he was discovered on a prairie at the edge of town, tied to a fence. Soon after, Mr. Shepard died at a hospital in Colorado. Ten members of Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie, Wyo., and conducted interviews with the people of the town. The company returned six times and conducted more 200 interviews. These transcripts became the basis for the play The Laramie Project. Ten years later, five members of Tectonic returned to Laramie to try to understand the long-term effect of the murder. They found a town wrestling with its legacy and its place in history. The play will complete a three-weekend run Saturday night. Tickets $20; $15 for military members and students. Tickets at:, at the door and or at box office 703-537-1071.
