The Laramie Project by Moisés Kaufman
directed by Dr. Cat Gleason

In the wake of the brutal murder of 21-year-old college student Matthew Shepard many people asked themselves how this could happen? Moisés Kaufman and the members of the Techtronic Theatre Project chose to find answers to that question. They traveled six times to Laramie, Wyoming to conduct more than 200 interviews. The Laramie Project is the complex and compassionate answer to that question.
