Over the next few months, LaramieProject.org will host an online forum between two Catholic High Schools as they rehearse and perform productions of The Laramie Project. Participating in the conversation will be St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, CA and Malvern Preparatory School in Malvern, PA.
Each week a new question will be posted so participating students can respond to the prompts and also to their peers' reactions. We hope this forum becomes a platform for a meaningful cross-country dialogue, establishing these schools as allies as they start important dialogues within their school and home communities. Tectonic sends support and love to both schools and looks forward to engaging in a timely and necessary exchange.
Final Reflections: In The Laramie Project, the Catholic Priest Father Roger says, "I will trust that if you write a play of this, that you say it right. You need to do your best to say it correct." How did your school's production attempt to honor Father Roger's challenge and why is it important for every production to "say it right"?
So many thanks to St. Bosco and Malvern for sharing your Laramie experiences with the online community! Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season.
