Description

In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a gay college student from the University of Wyoming, was kidnapped, beaten and left for dead. The senseless hate crime served as the impetus for "The Laramie Project"—originally produced by Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project, the play synthesizes more than 200 interviews conducted in the university's surrounding college town of Laramie. The play explores how the local community reacted to the murders and paints a picture of intolerance as well as understanding in rural America. The capstone project of two soon-to-be-graduating students, the production is free and open to the public.
