Description

The Appalachian State University Department of Theatre and Dance presents an expanded eight-performance run of “The Laramie Project” by Moisés Kaufman and the members of the Tectonic Theater Project Oct. 2–5 and 7–9. The department offers 7 p.m. performances Oct. 2–5 and 8–9 with a 2 p.m. matinee on Oct. 7. The production will be held in the Valborg Theatre on the university campus, and tickets are $10 for students, $15 for faculty and staff and $17 for adults.

After college student Matthew Shepard was brutally attacked by two men and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming in 1998, Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie to collect reactions to the hate crime. The theatre company gathered more than 400 hours worth of interviews and condensed them into a two-hour play. The script focuses not on the death of Shepard, but rather on the impact of the hate crime on the Laramie community.
