The Laramie Project


The laramie project 1463830147

In October 1998, 21 year-old student Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, brutally beaten and left to die tied to a fence post on the outskirts of Laramie. In the aftermath, Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theatre, spent over a year conducting interviews with people of the town. The play they devised as a result is a disturbingly frank, bewildering and at times chilling, exploration of the opinions of the people of Laramie towards homosexuality, social politics, education, class, violence, privileges and rights.
