Event description

Description

“In October of 1998, a young gay college student by the name of Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die in the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. Five weeks later, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie, and over the course of the next year, conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. From these interviews, they wrote The Laramie Project, a chronicle of the life of the town of Laramie in the year following the murder. The Laramie Project is one of the most performed plays in America today.”

Amplified Arts (AMP) in partnership with Rural Outright, a program of TLC Family Resource Center, will bring The Laramie Project to AMP’s flexible, intimate performance venue in downtown Claremont — produced with permission from The Dramatics Play Service.

A cast of 13 Early Career Artist from around Sullivan Country and members of our Academy program will perform The Laramie Project opening on April 27, the Day of Silence, a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to draw attention to the silence and erasure of LGBTQ people at school. Our production will be accompanied by pieces from the#KindnessInAction gallery showcasing student artwork created for No Name-Calling Week. And, following each show will be a panel discussion featuring the cast & crew, LGBTQ community members, and other experts.

**Due to strong language and mature subject matter, this production may not be suitable for all ages. It is not appropriate for small children or others who may be uncomfortable in an immersive environment.**
