The Laramie Project

Theater Department Performances
CFA Theater
Friday, Nov 15, 2019 at 8:00 PM (ET)

The Laramie Project is an alternatively heart-wrenching and soul-enriching story
of tragedy and compassion. Long hailed as a seminal theatrical work that probes
the deepest mysteries of human vulnerability and collective strength, The Laramie
Project recounts the final hours of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard’s life in a
senseless attack that demonstrated the depths of human rage. The Tectonic
Theater Company moved to Laramie, Wyoming in the aftermath and through their
over 200 interviews--witnessing the trial of the perpetrators and canvassing an
array of citizens--they created a theatrical event which to this day gives a place at
the table to a disenfranchised LGBTQ community both in America and abroad. Our
production educates us about difference, laments the tragedy of Matthew’s death,
and offers a human voice to sound the call of remembrance, compassion and
communal faith.

“There emerges a mosaic as moving and important as any you will see on the
walls of the churches of the world…nothing short of stunning…you will be held in
rapt attention.”—NEW YORK MAGAZINE"
