Twenty years ago, on October 7, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming, was brutally attacked and tied to a fence in a field outside of Laramie, Wyoming and left to die. On October 12, Matt succumbed to his wounds in a hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado. That November, ten New Yorkers set out for Laramie to explore a town and the crime that occurred there. After interviewing more than 200 residents, they created a deeply moving play about bigotry and tolerance, fear and courage, hate and hope – THE LARAMIE PROJECT.Written by MOISÉS KAUFMAN and members of the Tectonic Theater Project
