Description

THE LARAMIE PROJECT

by Moisés Kaufman
and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project


Directed by Lee Ann Payne


When Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in 1998, the residents of Laramie reacted to the anti-gay hate crime and surrounding media storm with anger, bewilderment, and sorrow. Their reactions were recorded by Moisés Kaufman and members of Tectonic Theater Project, and masterfully spun into a piece of theatre as important today as it is relevant. THE LARAMIE PROJECT portrays the seismic and deeply personal impact Matthew’s death had on the small town of Laramie, Wyoming, while also demonstrating the power of the human spirit to triumph over bigotry and violence. Join us as we revisit Matthew’s story on the 20th anniversary of his death.
