The Laramie Project Q & A

White Bear Center for the Arts

The Laramie Project is a play by Moisés 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.

The Laramie Project Q&A will consist of a panel of five people from the LGBTQ+ community. This is an opportunity to hear and better understand their stories and perspectives.
