Theatre: The Laramie Project 

Jones Theatre in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center: 3/30, 3/31/ 4/1, and 4/2: 7:30-9:00 pm


In 1998, a young gay man named Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten to death outside of Laramie, Wyoming. Moises Kaufmann and the members of the Tectonic Theatre Company went to the town of Laramie six times and recorded interviews with the townspeople about the horrific crime. The play that emerged was The Laramie Project; a powerful documentary work that asks deep questions about why tragedies occur and how communities respond. With sixty different characters, the play allows us to travel beyond common stereotypes to see humanity in all our complexity; to see us as both flawed and powerful and to provide hope in times of darkness.
