On October 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard was beaten and left to die tied to a fence in the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming.  Matthew died six days later.  His torture and murder became a watershed historical moment in America that highlighted many of the fault lines in our culture.  A month after the murder, the members of Tectonic Theatre Production traveled to Laramie and conducted interviews with people from that town.  From these interviews they wrote the play The Laramie Project.  --

"The Laramie Project portrays an American town with grace, truth, theatrical economy, compassion, wit, despair and love.  It proves that theatre can serve as witness to our deeds.  It's we who must answer one by one, for what we all create and what we destroy together."  -- from a San Francisco Chronical review of the original Laramie Project
