Laramie, A Legacy event by Tectonic Theater Project, Raises over $100k in Partnership with Matthew Shepard Foundation
New York, NY September 26, 2018……Twenty years ago this month, the eyes of the nation were drawn to Laramie, Wyoming after the hate crime murder of Matthew Shepard. In the following weeks, the Matthew Shepard Foundation was founded and members of Tectonic Theater Project traveled from New York to Laramie to conduct interviews with the people of the town. These interviews formed the basis of “The Laramie Project,” which has become one of the most performed contemporary plays in the world. On September 24, 2018, the Matthew Shepard Foundation and Tectonic Theater Project presented LARAMIE: A LEGACY, a benefit reading of The Laramie Project to honor the progress made over the last two decades to erase hate, raising over $100,000 for the two organizations.
