In October 1998, Laramie, Wyoming was the site of a violent crime against a young man named Matthew Shepard. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the violent attack and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. In this online production, WCT features a cast of 9th-12th graders exploring what this story means for a new generation of performers and audiences over twenty years later.
