About the play: Still compelling after 25 years, The Laramie Project is a stunning, dramatic theatrical examination of the immediate reactions of the Laramie, Wyoming community to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay college student, and the underlying bigotry and hatred that enabled it. The Laramie Project is a powerful production that explores the mature topics of hatred, intolerance and fear.
