WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

On the night of October 6, 1998 or in the early morning hours of October 7, Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was abducted, robbed and beaten by four members of the Laramie community. He died of injuries on October 12. Two of the suspects were charged with kidnapping, robbery and murder; the other two were charged with being accessories. On November 14, 1998, Moises Kaufman and members of his theater company, Tectonic Theater Project, traveled to Laramie to talk to people in the town where the crime occurred. The Laramie Project is the dramatization of over 200 interviews conducted by Kaufman and his company over the next year. There is an additional performance on Thursday, August 8 at 2:00pm.
