The Laramie Project
by Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theatre Project, 31 January 2010


The Laramie Project
traces the effects a brutal homophobic murder has on a small American Mid-West town, from the immediate aftermath of the crime, to conclusion of the murder trial. It examines how a town comes to terms with worldwide media attention that challenges the values they believed were the cornerstone of their community.

Over 200 interviews were recorded with the Laramie town folk over 18 months. The interviews were edited and brought together to form the play, first performed in 2000. Originally the 63 characters were played by just 8 actors, but through the use of residents own dialogue the town of Laramie comes to life.

It is an emotional journey viewed from many different perspectives, giving actors a fantastic chance to stretch their abilities.

The workshop will start on the evening of Friday 29, followed by a whole days rehearsal on the Saturday, a morning rehearsal on the Sunday followed by a dress rehearsal at the venue; finishing off with a workshop production early evening.

It promises to be a hugely fun weekend, where you are guaranteed to feel a real sense of excitement and achievement when the curtain falls.

Registration and casting has now taken place but you can still come and share the end result.
