The Laramie Project

Studio , University Productions
Friday 4 May 2018 - Saturday 5 May 2018

Laramie, Wyoming. 1998. 

20 year old Matthew Shepard was tragically and horrifically murdered in a homophobic attack that shocked the town of Laramie. In 2018, 3rd year Theatre Arts students will mark 20 years since Matthew’s death with a performance of The Laramie Project.

Using verbatim dialogue and the real words of the residents of Laramie, the show delves into their lives to examine how Matthew’s death became a catalyst for change in America and in the UK.  The Laramie Project, written by Moises Kaufman and The Tectonic Theatre Project is a poignant and relevant show about justice. 

£5 tickets for University of Derby Students
