THE LARAMIE PROJECT

Laramie, Wyoming, was the site of the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old, gay, University of Wyoming student. On October 6, 1998, he was found tied to a fence, beaten and unconscious. On October 8, 1998, Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney were arrested for the kidnapping, aggravated robbery and attempted first-degree murder of Matthew Shepard. On October 12, 1998, Matthew Shepard died in Poudre Valley Health Center after 5 days in a coma. The charges against Henderson and McKinney were amended to include first-degree murder.
On November 14, 1998, members of Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, and conducted interviews with the people of the town documenting their reaction to Matthew Shepard’s murder. This play is edited from those interviews, as well as from journal entries by members of the company.

This is the first Portuguese production of The Laramie Project.
