The Laramie Project

April 20, 2022 - April 24, 2022

On October 7, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, was discovered bound to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die.  His death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of the town, the event was deeply personal.  Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience based on over 200 interviews they conducted with the citizens of Laramie during the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. The Laramie Project, one of the most-performed theatre pieces in America, is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. Directed by Jim Tasse.
