The Bush School to present The Laramie Project
The Bush School to present The Laramie Project
The Bush Upper School Drama Department will present The Laramie Project (February 1-4 @ 7 p.m. and February 5 @ 2 p.m.). Based on true events, the play is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are also capable. The story: in 1998, a 21 year old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten and left to die tied to a fence in a prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. He passed away several days later. His name was Matthew Shepard and he was the victim of this assault because he was Gay.

Members of NYC's Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year in the aftermath of the murder and conducted more than two hundred interviews with the people of the town-creating a modern day Our Town -the breadth of their reactions to the crime is moving and fascinating.

Call 206-322-7978 for reservations or you can e-mail your reservation to terry.walburn@bush.edu. Seating is limited.

Additionally, there will be an Opening Night Dinner on Wednesday, February 1 at 5 p.m. featuring a presentation by Brad Clark of the Iowa Safe Schools Coalition entitled: "That's So Gay..."

Words like "faggot" or "dyke" and phrases like "that's so Gay" are everyday vocabulary for many students and adults. What kinds of impact do these slurs have on today's world? This program explores the effects of homophobia and heterosexism. The session will use an analysis of power and privilege that focuses on the intersections of oppression, and will stress the importance of addressing LGBT issues in a critical and inclusive context.

The dinner/presentation is $7 per person and will be held in The Bush School Commons followed by a free performance after dinner in Benaroya Theatre at 7 p.m.. Again, call 206-322-7978 for reservations or you can e-mail your reservation to terry.walburn@bush.edu.

Directions to the Bush School (3400 E Harrison St., Seattle) from Downtown Seattle:
