About the Play – In 1998, Matthew Shepard was fatally injured and left for dead because he was gay. Following his death, the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie, Wyoming to understand the town which came to be defined by two men’s crime. The Laramie Project retells the words of Laramie’s residents verbatim, and in their retelling, begins to uncover the prejudices, both loud and quiet, that boil over into violent hate crime.

Join the ensemble of actors as they embody these stories, bringing the Laramie of 1998 to the immersive Club OBERON. Join them as they ask – what does Laramie have left to tell us?

About the Artists – The Laramie Project, written by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project, features an entirely undergraduate cast and production staff from Harvard College. The ensemble features Sarah Grammar, Celia Kenney, Ashley LaLonde, Hannah Lemmons, Jacob Licht, Bobby Malley, Michael Shirek, and Milan Williams. The production is directed by Eli Schleicher, stage managed by Juliet Lewis, and produced by Madeleine Snow.

Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club (HRDC), founded in 1908 as the Harvard Dramatic Club, is the umbrella organization for undergraduate theatre at Harvard College. HRDC oversees mainstage and blackbox productions in the Loeb Drama Center, sharing space and resources with the nationally acclaimed American Repertory Theater. HRDC has staged several musical productions in A.R.T.’s Club OBERON, and TheLaramie Project will be the organization’s first dramatic production in the venue.
