The Laramie Project
Directed by Shelley Liebembuk
The Laramie Project is a modern classic. Created by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project, this verbatim theatre piece is constructed from the transcripts of over 200 interviews, conducted in the aftermath of the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, in Laramie, Wyoming, in 1998. The piece reveals a community grappling with violence, responsibility, and healing; and showcases how theatre can be a brave space for us to engage with this together.
Performances will be held at the UFV Abbotsford campus Performance Studio from March 23 – April 1, 2023.
