The Laramie Project
By Moisés Kaufman and Members of Tectonic Theatre Project

In October 1998, gay university student Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die in Laramie, Wyoming. This is a story of hope, fear and courage. This is a true story.

The play draws on hundreds of interviews conducted with inhabitants of the town, journal entries, and published news reports. It is divided into three acts, and eight actors portray more than sixty characters in a series of short scenes.
