I have nothing to say about the murder of Christopher Lane. Except this: The killing of this Australian man, allegedly by a group of boys who were bored and could think of nothing better to do, suggests chilling amorality and a sociopathic estrangement from the sacredness of life. The fact that these teenagers were able to get their hands on a gun with which to shoot the 22-year-old student in the back on Aug. 16 as he was jogging in the small Oklahoma town of Duncan leaves me embarrassed for my country -- and thankful I am not the one who has to explain to his country how such a thing can happen.

Any woman who's ever thought that men are another species may recognize the protagonist's predicament in Elizabeth Egloff's The Swan. Egloff, whose Turgenev adaptation The Lover premiered at Center Stage in 1996, also explored the theme of love in The Swan, but this time she's writing about trans-species romance. Part Greek myth, part Swan Lake and part soap opera, the play is mostly bizarre. But it's also wildly funny, rather touching and splendidly acted at Rep Stage in Columbia, under Kasi Campbell's direction.

The killing of Australian college student Christopher Lane in Duncan, Okla. is just one more tragedy that demonstrates the need for gun control ("Suspect's sister: 'He wouldn't listen,' Aug. 22). In your article, Daniel Ford is quoted as saying, "These punks are going to take our freedom away? Give me a break. " I am sorry but the right to live trumps the right to own a gun. This country could learn something from Australia. In 1996, Australia put several laws into effect under their National Firearm Agreement.

"Therese Raquin," a tale of adultery, murder and guilt, opens tomorrow at Olney Theatre Center. Adapted for the stage by Neal Bell from Emile Zola's novel, the play will be presented in Olney's intimate Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab. Valerie Leonard portrays the title character, a young woman trapped in a dull, loveless marriage. Daryl Lozupone is her sickly husband, Camille; and Christopher Lane plays Camille's friend, with whom Therese has a passionate affair. Directed by Jim Petosa, the production features a scenic design by James Kronzer, built around gilded picture frames in varying states of decay.

INIMITABLE IBSEN The lowdown -- In this centenary year of Henrik Ibsen's death, Olney Theatre Center's Potomac Theatre Festival is presenting two plays by the Norwegian dramatist. First up is Hedda Gabler, now in previews and opening Sunday. Under Halo Wines' direction, Julie-Ann Elliott portrays the title character, the perilously disenchanted new wife of a professor, played by Christopher Lane. Next month, the same actors will again play husband and wife - Dr. and Mrs. Stockmann - in director Jim Petosa's production of An Enemy of the People.

The gleaming amber backdrop for the Olney Theatre Center's production of The Laramie Project is as vast as the Wyoming sky. Sometimes, it's a mirror in which the audience is reflected as it ponders the brutal slaying of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard because he was gay. Sometimes, it's a screen on which images are projected of a sheriff's badge, or the fence to which the dying young man was tied. Sometimes, it's a sheer curtain behind which the actors sit while they look out at us. We are both the observers and the observed - just like the people of Laramie, Wyo. The Laramie Project is a piece of theatrical journalism that was created after Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming, was robbed, pistol-whipped and tied to a fence in an isolated area as temperatures plunged into the 30s. When he was discovered 18 hours later, there were only two clean streaks on his blood-soaked face - streaks caused by his tears.

As we celebrate the 50 t h anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech, it becomes ever more obvious that years of big government attempts to mandate racial equality have failed ( "Anniversary March on Washington shows Dr. King's 'dream' remains unfulfilled," Aug. 28). In his speech, King was driven by his morality and his service to a divine cause. He dreamed of a future in which all God's children were equal, and of a time where white, black, yellow, brown and red would have a dignity not based upon the color of their skin, but upon the goodness and purity of their divinely formed character.
