More information about the Play:
A decade after the groundbreaking docudrama The Laramie Project, the creators of the play returned to Wyoming to focus on the long-term effects on the people and community most directly impacted by the murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard. Members of the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie last October to ask: has the town changed as a result of this event? What does life in Laramie tell us about life in America 10 years later? What impact has his murder had on the path of his mother? His murderers? These powerful interviews make up The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later.

If you are interested in these tickets, please email Ben at and provide the following information: name, address, phone number, email address, theater affiliation and number of tickets. No more than two tickets per theatre. Tickets can be picked up on the evening of the event, in the Goodman Lobby.
