The Laramie Project poster

The Laramie Project was first produced in the year 2000, and is a dynamic, moving play by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project about the reaction to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming. This gripping drama draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by the theatre company with inhabitants of the town, company members' own journal entries, and published news reports.

The production is appropriate for ages 14 and older, and contains graphic descriptions of violence and some verbal sexual references.

Running time is projected to be between 2 and 2.5 hours, with two intermissions.
