"The Laramie Project" is a critical play that addresses the brutal murder of gay teenager Matthew Shepard in the small town of Laramie, Wyoming, an incident that sparked national debate back in 1998. Matthew Shepard was a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming. On a cold night in October, he was robbed, tied to a cattle fence and beaten savagely, then left to die. He was found eighteen hours later by a biker. Though he was taken to a hospital, he slipped into a coma and later died, never regaining consciousness. Two young men, both locals, were later charged with the crime.
