Show Notes – Sept. 24, 2023

This October marks 25 years since the murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. It also marks a quarter century since the Techtonic Theater Project created “The Laramie Project” – a play that recounted for the world how the people of the town reacted to this horrific hate crime. In commemoration of these events, Napa Valley College is presenting a reading of The Laramie Project on Saturday, October 7th. My guest this month is one of the play writes and actors, Greg Pierotti. He is now a professor at Arizona State University and is producing The Laramie Project there. We’ll have some of his student actors on to talk about their parts in the play.
