The Laramie Project is the acclaimed 2000 play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project about the reaction to the 1998 murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in Wyoming and elsewhere.

This play deals with mature subject matter and may not be appropriate for younger viewers. For more information contact Gina Scribner at gscribner@yvcc.edu  / 509.574.4881.
