"The Laramie Project" chronicles the life of the town of Laramie, Wyoming, in the year after the murder of 21-year-old student Matthew Shepherd, who was severely beaten because he was gay. Writers Moises Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made several trips to Laramie over the course of a year and half to conduct interviews in the aftermath of the beating and during the trail of the two young men accused of killing Shepard.
