Apr 24 (Thu) - The Laramie Project (Mercyhurst University, Taylor Little Theatre, 501 E 38th St, Erie, PA) 8 PM - 12:20 AM. The Mercyhurst Theatre Program Presents: The Laramie Project by Moisés Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project. Directed by Dr. Brett D. Johnson. In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, and others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of their reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. Performance times: Thursday, April 24 @ 8:00 PM, Friday, April 25 @ 8:00 PM, Saturday, April 26 @ 8:00 PM, & Sunday, April 27 @ 2:00 PM. Ticket prices: Adult - $10.00, Senior/Student/PC - $7.00, Youth/MUStu w/ID - $5.00. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
