The Laramie Project by Moisés Kaufman and the members of the Tectonic Theater Project
Aftershow Q&A on Monday 25 November
Inspired by true events, Moisés Kaufman’s verbatim play confronts the brutal and homophobic murder of Matthew Shepard, which sparked shock and debate in the USA in 1998.
Comprising over 400 interviews gathered over 18 months, Kaufman’s ground-breaking play explores the personal tragedy of what became a political turning point in hate crime legislation in America.
Moisés Kaufman created The Laramie Project with members of the Tectonic Theater Project, which he co-founded in 1991. His other works include Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde and the Tony-nominated 33 Variations.
Kristine Landon Smith co-founded Tamasha Theatre in 1989. Her work with Tamasha includes the Olivier-nominated East is East, Fourteen Songs, Two Weddings and A Funeral, The Trouble, Child of the Divide and Wuthering Heights. Kristine has taught all over the world, particularly in the UK and Australia.
