The Laramie Project

 Field with barn in background

Fall 2020
Written by Moisés Kaufman and the Members of the Tectonic Theater Project
Directed by John Kuntz

After careful consideration, we have decided to produce this show in the fall in a digital format. Our hope is that the remaining shows in our season will be able to be produced in the spring in-person.

In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, a twenty-one-year-old, gay student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members 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.
