'Laramie Project' play brings powerful aftermath of Shepard killing to Snoqualmie's Black Dog

Snoqualmie’s Theatre Black Dog presents “The Laramie Project,” a play about the reaction to the 1998 beating and murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay student at the University of Wyoming.

The play’s authors conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town of Laramie, in the aftermath of Shepard’s death. “The Laramie Project” is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which people are capable.

Performances are at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 3 p.m. on Sundays, March 28 through April 12.

A pre-show dinner is 5 to 8 p.m. Reservations are recommended.

The Black Dog Arts Cafe is located at 8062 Railroad Ave S.E., Snoqualmie. Tickets are $15, $12 for seniors and students.
