In October 1998, Matthew Shephard was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. In the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from interviews conducted with members of the community and their own experiences in Laramie. 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.
