THE LARAMIE PROJECT runs Nov. 29-Dec. 1

THE LARAMIE PROJECT
Presented by UC College-Conservatory of Music Drama
Nov. 29-Dec. 1
University Heights

Directed by Richard E. Hess

The facts surrounding the death of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student whose brutal murder shocked the country in 1998, come to life on stage. Award-winning playwright Moisés Kaufman and members of his theater company traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, to conduct 200 interviews with the residents of the town. What resulted is a powerful dramatization of the murder, investigation and subsequent convictions—a sobering look into how hate is born and nurtured in the back streets of a friendly American town. Mature subject matter.
