"The Laramie Project" is set in and around Laramie, Wyoming, in the aftermath of the murder of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard.
To create the stage version of "The Laramie Project," the eight-member New York-based Tectonic Theatre Project traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, recording hours of interviews with the town's citizens over a two-year period. The adaptation dramatizes the troupe's visit, using the actual words from the transcripts to create a portrait of a town forced to confront itself.
The Year 13s have done a wonderful job with not only performing in the production but everything behind the scenes as well, including; Costumes, Makeup, Props, Set Design, Media Design, Sound Design and Lighting Design.
