About the play:
The Laramie Project is a verbatim theatre piece constructed from transcripts of over 200 interviews. The play was created by Moises Kaufman and the members of the Tectonic Theatre Project (NYC) 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. It showcases how theatre is a brave space for us to engage with this together.
About the Winter production:
Directed by Theatre professor Shelley Liebembuk, the performance will have actors portraying multiple characters [there are over 60 characters in the show!] and engaging with projections, movement, and song. It is an opportunity for actors to expand their range of character work and build a strong collective ensemble.
