In October 1998 Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. Weeks later, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project visited Laramie. Over the course of the next year they conducted interviews with people of the town and from this wrote "The Laramie Project," a play chronicling the town in the year after the murder.
"The Laramie Project" is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink, and the heights of compassion of which we are also capable. This play is partially supported by the Theatre and Social Justice Fund.
