The New York-based Tectonic Theater Company, which wrote and produced the hit play The Laramie Project is offering an epilogue 10 years later.

In November, 1998, about a month after openly gay college student Matthew Shepard was tortured and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wy., the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to the town to investigate. Over the course of the next year, they compiled more than 200 interviews with Laramie's residents into a stage production that came to represent to many audiences the deep-seeded prejudices and cultural faultlines in America.
