CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- A director/designer presentation for 'The Laramie Project,' next month's season-opening production for Theatre UNI, will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18 in the Bertha Martin Theatre of the Strayer-Wood Theatre on the University of Northern Iowa campus.
The presentation will allow Director Cynthia Goatley, UNI associate professor of theatre, and the show's scenic, lighting, and costume designers to share their vision and interpretation of the play that will be presented by Theatre UNI, Oct. 10-20.
Moises Kaufman's 'The Laramie Project' is a docudrama that explores a small Wyoming town's reactions to the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student. The play challenges audiences to examine their own prejudices and consider the question: Could this happen in our community?
The presentation is free and open to the public. For more information contact Jascenna Haislet-Carlson at (319) 273-6387.
