Theatre: The Laramie Project
02/09/2018 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm

HELENA – Carroll College Theatre is producing, The Laramie Project, by Moises Kaufman and The Tectonic Theater Project. This production is a documentary-style play which has the transcribed words of over 200 real people who lived at the time of the murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. This show will run February 9–17, in the flexible black box-style theatre in the lower level of the Carroll College Campus Center. This year is the twenty-year anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death.

In October 1998, a twenty-one year old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left to die 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. Moises Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater 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 and others were citizens of Laramie. The Laramie Project chronicles the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder.
