Ten years after the brutal death of Matthew Shepard, Moisés Kaufman and the members of the Tectonic Theater Project returned to Laramie, Wyoming, and reinterviewed many of those who lent their voices to the dramatically powerful Laramie Project, adding an essential coda to what has become a classic of our time.
On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of Laramie the event was deeply personal, and it’s they we hear in this stunningly effective theater piece, a deeply complex portrait of a community.
