The Laramie Project (2000) was written by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project. It centers on the people of the town of Laramie, Wyoming and the community's response to the 1998 beating and murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student. The play draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by the Tectonic Theatre company members from some 80 members of the community and explores the reaction to the brutal hate crime and the effect it had on the people of Laramie and on the country as a whole. Our performance brings together both students and teachers who explore this powerful and moving piece in the intimacy of our black box theatre. Click here for ticket information.
