The London School of Dramatic Art present a Graduate Show.
On October 6th of 1998, Matthew Shepard was beaten and left to die tied to a fence in the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. He died 6 days later. His torture and murder became a watershed historical moment in America that highlighted many of the fault lines in our culture.
A month after the murder, the members of Tectonic Theater Project travelled to Laramie and conducted interviews with the people of the town. From these interviews they wrote the play The Laramie Project.
The Waiting Room is an audio piece designed to be accessed on your smartphone via a series of QR codes placed within the Café Gallery. Made up of 12 2-minute chapters, the piece can be experienced in its entirety, through individual character narratives (3-4 chapters) or as 12 ephemeral moments in time.
Accessible via a visitor's smartphone, there will also be specific dates where MP3 players will be available to borrow to listen to the full 24 minute audio piece.
As a part of our OUTLAWS season, the fabulous artist David Shillinglaw has created Trickster - the ultimate Outlaw, one of our gallery walls.
London based artist David Shillinglaw was born of British parents in 1982 in the Middle East, which may explain his thirst for travel and exhibiting in galleries worldwide. His work moves between street and studio, from small hand made books, to paintings on canvas, and large scale wall murals, and now, happily, to the wall of a small theatre in south London.
