The Laramie Project6 - 20 May

The Laramie Project

A chance to see the iconic play, rarely performed in the UK, about the gay hate crime that shocked the whole world and led to the USA's 2009 Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act.

In October 1998, 21 year-old student Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, brutally beaten and left to die tied to a fence post on the outskirts of Laramie. In the aftermath, Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theatre, spent over a year conducting interviews with people of the town. The play they devised as a result is a disturbingly frank, bewildering and at times chilling, exploration of the opinions of the people of Laramie towards homosexuality, social politics, education, class, violence, privileges and rights.

That is, until the factory workers are refused a 7½ cent raise, and the pair find themselves on either side of the union protest that results. When their moral principles seem set to tear them apart, will Sid and Babe realise that the value of true love is much greater than 7½ cents?
