The Laramie Project
by Moisés Kaufman
and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project
In October 1998, the brutal death of a young gay man in Laramie, Wyoming, shocked the country and became a national symbol of intolerance. But for the people of this Western town, the event was deeply personal. In the aftermath of Matthew Shepard’s beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing him, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project journeyed to Laramie over the following year, “listening to the citizens talk.” A breathtaking theatrical collage constructed from their interviews and the Tectonic’s own experiences, The Laramie Project creates a profoundly moving exploration of the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
