A Relevant, Powerful Story told through Docu-Theatre Performance

The Laramie Project presents a deeply complex portrait of a community’s response to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man living in Laramie, Wyoming. In a series of poignant reflections, the residents of Laramie react to the hate crime and surrounding media storm with anger, bewilderment, and sorrow. The play by Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project portrays the seismic and deeply personal impact Matthew’s death had on this small town while also demonstrating the power of the human spirit to triumph over bigotry and violence. 

Are you willing to confront the destructive power of bullying and hate in all forms?
