In 1998 Matthew Shepard, a gay college student, was found severely beaten and tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. As news of his death focused world attention on hate crime legislation, members of the Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie in an attempt to understand. Based on more than two hundred interviews with area residents, as well as published news reports and company member journals, The Laramie Project illuminates the complexities of living in community and the process of healing even as it chronicles life in the town of Laramie during the year after the murder.
