Fearless Productions Presents

By Moisés Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project

Directed by James Walsh

August 8 thru 17

Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM

Sundays at 3:00 PM

 

In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, and others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of their reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.


A Note from Director James Walsh:  "I was lucky as a young actor to be exposed to such an amazing play as the Laramie project . The play deals with homosexuality and how the people of Laramie Wyoming deal with the murder of Mathew Shepard, teaching me one of the great lessons as an actor; to not judge your character. Now directing it with such a important social message it's important to not demonizes characters you disagree with but just tell there story and in turn the message will be more profound! This group of actors embodies this message and what it means as an actor to be fearless!"
