The Laramie Project

by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project

4th Year Performing Arts students present The Laramie Project as their graduation show 2023. Performance will take place at The Factory Performance Space Sligo at 8pm on May 19 2023.

There is no charge for the performance.

In October 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was beaten, robbed, tied to a fence post and left alone to die in Laramie, Wyoming. The reason for this violence? Matthew Shepard was gay.

The Laramie Project is a verbatim theatre piece exploring the testimonies of over 200 interviews conducted by Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project. It comprises the voices of the people directly affected, as well as the everyday citizens of its rural setting. These accounts create a unique snapshot of a small town’s reaction to a horrifically violent hate crime

Audiences are advised that this performance contains scenes which may be distressing to some people, including  Homophobia, murder, assault and physical violence, coarse language, and adult situations.
