The Laramie Project Thursday 11 - Saturday 20 August
Based on the true story of the murder of a young gay man Matthew Shepard in 1998, The Laramie Project records the reaction of people in shock, denial and recovery following a horrific hate crime.
Still poignantly relevant, this production from Theatre Royal Wakefield's In On The Act serves as a reminder that intolerance has destructive tendencies and can happen anywhere, any time and to anyone.
