Starting this weekend and running through April 13th, student theater group Tectonic Theater Project at Lehigh University performs The Laramie Project;
In October 1998 Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. Soon after the brutal beating, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project began year-long interviews with two hundred town residents. The Laramie Project was born from those interviews. The brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, an openly gay twenty-one year old student, sparked a dialogue about hate crimes that rocked the nation and continues to this day.
