THE STORY: On November 6, 1998, gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard left the Fireside Bar with Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson. The following day he was discovered on a prairie at the edge of town, tied to a fence, brutally beaten, and close to death. Six days later Matthew Shepard died at Poudre Valley Hospital in Ft. Collins, Colorado. On November 14th, 1998, ten members of Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie, Wyoming and conducted interviews with the people of the town. Over the next year, the company returned to Laramie six times and conducted over 200 interviews. These texts became the basis for the play The Laramie Project. Ten years later on September 12th, 2008, five members of Tectonic returned to Laramie to try to understand the long-term effect of the murder. They found a town wrestling with its legacy and its place in history. In addition to revisiting the folks whose words riveted us in the original play, this time around, the company also spoke with the two murderers, McKinney and Henderson, as well as Matthew's mother, Judy Shepard. THE LARAMIE PROJECT: TEN YEARS LATER is a bold new work, which asks the question, "How does society write its own history?"

The Laramie Project, one of the most-performed theater pieces in America, has become a modern classic. In this expanded edition, it is joined by an essential and moving sequel to the original play. On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of the town, the event was deeply personal. In the aftermath, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie and conducted more than 200 interviews with its citizens. From the transcripts, the playwrights constructed an extraordinary chronicle of life in the town after the murder. In The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, the troupe revisits the town a decade after the tragedy, finding a community grappling with its legacy and its place in history. The two plays together comprise an epic and deeply moving theatrical cycle that explores the life of an American town over the course a decade.

The Tectonic Theater Project (TTP) under the leadership of Moisés Kaufman began their ethnographic research in Laramie, Wyoming in November 1998, four weeks after the murder of Matthew Shepard. The impact of The Laramie Project is significant as an example of theatre for social change; however the methods used by the TTP to gather and disseminate their research material for this project are often overlooked. Furthermore a full-length epilogue, published ten years after the original performance, reassesses the research and results, developing a complicated field of ethical dilemmas in representation. This article maps the ways in which The Laramie Project is connected to and also how it significantly departs from the codes of ethics outlined by three leading anthropological organizations and considers the challenges inherent in performance as representation. Documentary drama, like The Laramie Project, becomes a rich and useful space for rehearsing the ways in which ethics guide fieldwork in anthropology and performance, and how these disciplines might learn from and employ particular strategies inherent to each discipline.

Im Sommer 1969 erschüttert eine Reihe bestialischer Morde Los Angeles und die USA. Sharon Tate, die schwangere Ehefrau von Roman Polanski, ist eines der sieben Opfer des Serienmörders Charles Manson. Vincent Bugliosi war leitender Staatsanwalt in diesem spektakulären Fall. In seinem meisterhaft geschriebenen Buch berichtet er, wie es ihm in minutiöser Detektivarbeit gelang, Charles Manson und seine ihm blind ergebene Hippie-Kommune für das Massaker hinter Gitter zu bringen. Die akribischen Ermittlungen, der komplexe Prozess, die kranke Weltanschauung, die Manson seinen Anhängern einflößte ... all dies macht diesen atemberaubend spannenden Weltbestseller aus. Seit 1971 sitzt Manson im Hochsicherheitsgefängnis, doch vergessen ist er noch lange nicht. Er ist zu einer diabolischen Kultfigur geworden, deren apokalyptisches Szenario und verschrobene Weltanschauung auch heute noch eine makabere Faszination ausüben. Dies ist eine Neuausgabe des 2010 erschienen Buchs Helter Skelter - Der Mordrausch des Charles Manson.

Der ursprüngliche Titel Deutschland - ein Greuelmärchen zeigt, in welche Tradition Brecht dieses Stück eingereiht wissen wollte Er sah die Verhältnisse im »Reich« mit dem scharfen Blick der Emigranten und beschrieb sie mit knapper, realistischer Genauigkeit. Die vierundzwanzig Szenen des Stücks zeichnen das Bild des Faschismus und der ihn konstituierenden Mentalität.
