Cryer to Appear in "The Laramie Project" at LSU's Swine Palace

The Play Details Reactions of Laramie, Wisconsin, Residents to Matthew Shepard Beating Death

Tags

Assistant Professor of Theatre Mark Cryer is in rehearsal for "The Laramie Project" by Moisés Kaufman at Swine Palace, the professional theatre at Louisiana State University. Cryer is doing eight different characters in the production, which will be open April 21-May 9.  Following the brutal, hate-inspired murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard in 1998, the play’s creators traveled to the scene of the crime, Laramie, Wyoming, and interviewed residents of the small town. The interviews were adapted into a moving, poignant script that asks the audience to consider how such a heinous crime and the media scrutiny that followed could affect an entire community’s existence.
