Based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew
The death of Matthew Shepard in 1998 changed the world. The viciousness of the crime brought national and international attention to hate-crime legislation at the state and federal levels. This play, an example of documentary theatre, draws on hundreds of interviews with the citizens of Wyoming, the playwrights’ own journal entries, and published news reports; and has been performed by actors like Darren Criss, Peter Fonda, Cyndi Lauper, and Laura Linney.
