The Laramie Projet is a play written by Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theatre Project in response to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, in Laramie, Wyoming. Kaufman and the other company members visited Laramie on six occasions and interviewed residents, members of the police force, and Matthew’s friends, in an attempt to understand what happened and why.
Northern Starz Center for the Performing Arts is proud to bring The Laramie Project to White Bear Center for the Arts. This project is a traveling five-month educational series for high school actors at Northern Starz. It is being produced to help educate the community on LGBTQ+ history, rights, and where we are going as a nation.
