Emily Vieweg, a poet living in Fargo, got a commission from the Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre to write a poem responding to their production of "The Laramie Project." That play is a work of documentary theatre about the murder of Matthew Shepard. She speaks with Bill Thomas about the process, and then we hear her reading of the poem.

This piece is funded in part by The Arts Partnership, with support from the Cities of fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo.
