Dalby Players bring tragedy to the stage
AUDIENCE members can catch Dalby Players' production The Laramie Project this weekend.
The play is based on real life events in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998 about the reaction to the murder of a gay student.
Director and actor Jeremy Wood said the play dealt with confronting themes but was a play he had long wanted to tackle.
"The play has long spoken to me on many levels, recognisable characters and issues from my time growing up in a small town, the struggle identifying with other than 'the norm' and the effect a tragedy can have on the people of a town," he said.
"Every character we play, every line we say are all from interviews and documents of the time."
Performances at the Myall St theatre are on October 23 and 24 with a matinee also on October 24.
The Friday and Saturday evening shows start at 7pm, and the matinee starts at 2pm.
Tickets available from Dalby Colour Innovations $20 adults, $15 concessions.
