The Laramie Project

4 Male, 4 Female

Moisés Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater… Price: $8.99

In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming

His bloody, bruised and battered body was not discovered until the next day

He died several days later in an area hospital

His name was Matthew Shepard

He was the victim of this assault because he was gay

Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard

They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town

Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, and others were citizens of Laramie

The breadth of their reactions to the crime is fascinating
