The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project begins as various members of the Laramie community praise the town of Laramie, Wyoming, speaking glowingly about town’s close-knit community and expounding on its natural beauty. After the residents of Laramie introduce their town, members of Tectonic Theater Project describe how the theater company’s leader, Moisés Kaufman, asked them to join him in Laramie, Wyoming to research a play about the murder of Matthew Shepard, an openly gay university student in Laramie. Some theater company members were initially hesitant, worrying both about their own safety and the ethics of representing a real community on stage. After some thought and convincing, though, they did eventually agree to participate.

In Laramie, the company meets first with Rebecca Hilliker, the head of the theater department at the University of Wyoming. Rebecca connects them with people to interview, and the company uses fragments from these interviews (conducted with many people connected to Matthew Shepard) to give the audience a sense of who Matthew was according to the people who knew and loved him. Characters like Romaine Patterson describe Matthew’s “mega-watt” smile, while limousine driver Doc O’Connor talks about Matthew’s straight-forwardness regarding his sexuality.
