In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old University of Wyoming student was kidnapped, brutally beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody and battered body would not be discovered until the next day, and he would die several days later in the hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this brutal assault because he was gay.
Following the aftermath of the crime, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the next year and half. After conducting over 200 interviews with the residents of Laramie, Kaufman and the Tectonic members constructed a theatrical experience based on their interviews and their experiences in Laramie.
