The Laramie Project Participant Information

Performing: October 28 – 30, 2021

Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie, Wyoming over the course of a year and a half in the aftermath of the beating of Matthew Shepard and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing him. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town — some directly connected to the case, others citizens of Laramie — and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
