"We need to own this crime. Everyone needs to own it. We are like this. We ARE like this. WE are LIKE this."                                                               - Tectonic Theatre Project’s The Laramie Project



The Laramie Project is a documentary play created by the Tectonic Theatre Projects based on over 200 interviews conducted by the members of the company who travelled to Laramie, Wyoming to speak with the community. Based on a true story, this play examines the tragic murder of Matthew Sheppard in 1998, a young gay University of Wyoming student.

Directed by Trisha Lamie in courtesy of Actors' Equity, and performed by the Theatre & Performance Studies students from the University of Toronto Scarborough. The Laramie Project is a riveting portrayal of a community trying to come to terms with the aftermath of a highly controversial and publicized murder. A poignant story examining the need for understanding acceptance and hope. 

The performance is runnning from March 12-14 & 19-21 at 8 p.m. sharp in the Leigha Lee Browne Theatre. Tickets are selling for $10 adult, $8 students/seniors and $5 groups 10+. For more information and to purchase your ticket, visit
