The Laramie Project

In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, a student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a prairie fence.  Matthew was the target of this brutal assault because he was gay, and he died days later as a result of his injuries.  Moises Kaufmann and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of Laramie, Wyoming.  Based on those interviews, 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.
