The Laramie Project is a critical play that addresses the brutal murder of openly gay teenager Matthew Shepard in the small town of Laramie, Wyoming, an incident that sparked national debate back in 1998. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming. Divided into three acts, the play draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by the theatre company with inhabitants of the town, company members’ own journal entries, and published news reports.
