Fighting back against hatred: The Laramie Project
Here one of the killers talks
about his role in the murder.
By Shana Kongmun
The Laramie Project is a play based on interviews of Laramie Wyoming, USA, taken
after the brutal torture and murder of a young gay man, Matthew Shepard. Matthew
Shepard was an openly gay student at the University of Wyoming who was beaten
and tortured and left for dead tied to a fence on October 7, 1998. He died a few
days later from his injuries. His death led the way for sweeping changes in hate
The Laramie Project is the latest project of the Gate Theater and is a moving
and sadly tragic story of a town trying to explain itself to the world. The play
is by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project who drew on
hundreds of interviews with locals and their own journal entries. The 3 act play
has a group of actors skillfully switching characters as they relive the run up
to the crime and include such people as the leader of the Westboro Baptist
Church who came to Laramie to picket the funeral of Matthew Shepard.
Performed at Kad Suan Kaew, the Gate Theater once again excelled, this time in a
compelling and haunting portrayal of hate crimes.
The play also features narrators
who keep the threads of the story tied together.
Fred Phelps is portrayed in the
play, the leader of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church that picketed the
funeral of Matthew Shepard.
