The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. It was written by Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project in response to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, in Laramie, Wyoming. Kaufman and the other company members visited Laramie on six occasions and interviewed hundreds of residents, members of the police force and Matthew’s friends, in an attempt to understand what happened, and why. They were also interested in the possibility that theatre, more than any other medium, would allow people to engage with, and reflect on, the issues brought to public attention by Matthew’s murder, such as homophobia, hatred, intolerance and fear. The Laramie Project takes those real interviews and weaves them into the story of events surrounding the murder and the months beyond, allowing those most deeply affected to speak — and resulting in a brilliantly moving theatrical creation.
