Lindsay Street Players Present: The Laramie Project | Hamilton

See details in the event description

The Young People's Theatre

THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breath-taking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Content Warning: This production explores the following themes which may be triggering for some audience members: Homophobia, hate speech and hate crime, prejudice and intolerance, death, violence, kidnapping, torture and murder.

In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left 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. The Tectonic Theatre 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, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Tectonic Theatre has constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie.
