PROGRAM

Lab Series

By Moisés Kaufman
Directed by Eric Golovan

The Laramie Project is a breathtaking theatrical experience that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

In 1998, 21-year-old Matthew Shepard died after being kidnapped, severely beaten and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming, because he was gay.

Kaufman and Tectonic Theater Project constructed this deeply moving play from interviews and their own experiences visiting Laramie. The student director, Eric Golovan, said, “I want people to talk about what happened to Matthew Shepard in 1998 so that we can all realize that we as a society, even in 2023, have not fully learned our lesson.”
