Join a dynamic troupe of young actors for The Laramie Project, the powerful story of a town under siege in the aftermath of a disturbing hate crime

In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, a young gay student, was beaten, tied to a fence and left to die on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. The murder was denounced as a hate crime and brought worldwide attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states.


Drawing from hundreds of interviews conducted by writer Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project, the play showcases the anger, bewilderment and sorrow felt by Laramie residents in a series of poignant reflections throughout the play.


With the support of Intersticia Foundation and the Australian Live Theatre Fund, this production is made especially powerful by the young actors who tell this story with such wisdom and clarity.


The Laramie Project has been performed more than 2,000 times in theatres, universities and high schools around the world, and aims to generate a dialogue around issues of tolerance, equality and acceptance.
