The Laramie Project is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion to which it can rise.
In 1998, Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence, beaten, and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. He had been the victim of a homophobic hate crime.
Five weeks later, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie, and over the ensuing year interviewed more than 200 residents. The result was The Laramie Project, a chronicle of the life of Laramie in the year after the murder. Matthew Shepard's murder became a watershed moment in America, highlighting the violence and prejudice people still face in contemporary society.
