The Laramie Project

Following the brutal and senseless murder of a local young gay man, one small Wyoming town comes face to face with the reality and aftermath of cruel animosity. The true story of Matthew Sheppard’s death and its seismic effect felt nationwide is detailed through interviews from those connected to the case and other citizens of little Laramie, Wyoming. The Laramie Project remains a stunning portrait exploring the darkness of which humanity is capable and the glimmering light of compassion that can guide us all back. RTP’s production will commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Matthew’s murder.
