The Laramie Project
The Heights Players (26 Willow Pl., Brooklyn)
$15 in advance
In 1998, a young college student at the University of Wyoming, Matthew Shepard was beaten, tied to a fencepost and left to die by two men of similar age. After, the nature of the crime was revealed to be from hate and fear of homosexuality. A national debate ensued in America that painfully endures to this day. As the tragic events exploded all over the national media, a group of New York City based actors and writers, the Tectonic Theater Project, known for their unique style and view, were intrigued and went to Laramie, Wyoming to study the impact of these events and the result is the Heights’ March production of The Laramie Project.
