October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard

October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard is award-winning author Lesléa Newman’s deeply personal literary and theatrical response to the events of October 6, 1998, when 21-year-old Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten and hung on a fence to die in one of the most brutal gay hate crimes of recent memory. This work of poetic imagination, married to the hauntingly beautiful music of Curtis Heard, serves as an illumination to those unfamiliar with the tragedy, and as a powerful, enduring tribute to Matthew Shepard’s life and legacy.
