Ten years after the brutal murder of 21 year old University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard, and eight years after The Laramie Project made its stage debut, Tectonic Theater Project returned to Laramie to find out how much the city and its residents had changed in the ensuing decade – both in attitude and the response to the worldwide attention now focused on its 28,000 residents.

This epilogue also came to the stage to fight the backlash and the sources claiming that Matthew Shepard was not murdered because he was gay. Rumours of methamphetamine use from both parties convoluted the story and angered people worldwide. What exactly was the truth?
