The Laramie Project: A play by Moisés Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project

Nov 6, 2020


In October 1998, two men brutally murdered 21 year-old Matthew Shepard because he was gay. Kidnapped, severely beaten and left tied to a fence in the middle of a Laramie prairie, he died several days later in the hospital. Over the course of the next year and a half, the Tectonic Theater Project conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of Laramie, and from their research created a breathtaking and reverent work that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

The Department of Theatre & Dance is grateful to donor Roe Green for making our 2020-21 theatre season possible during these challenging times. We are thrilled to welcome videographer Greg Towle as our 2020 Roe Green Visiting Theatre Artist, enabling us to stream our productions of "The Laramie Project" and "She Kills Monsters."
