In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was
kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside
Laramie, Wyoming and left to die. His bloody, bruised and battered body was not
discovered until the next day, and he died several days later. His name was Matthew
Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman
and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over
the course of a year and a half in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial
of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200
interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly
connected to the case, and others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of
their 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. 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 capable.
