In October 1998 Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. Five weeks later, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie, and over the course of the next year, conducted more than 200 interviews with people of the town. From these interviews they wrote the play The Laramie Project, a chronicle of the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is one of the most performed plays in America today. Q1Go Productions produces a wide range of progressive and meaningful theatrical presentations of the highest possible quality with younger actors, with an emphasis on new and culturally or socially relevant work while creating a platform for young artists to develop critical thinking skills, empathy, and compassion while empowering them to make a difference in their communities. The Fort Collins Museum of Art, Q1Go Productions and Bas Bleu Theatre are pleased to collaborate on this very special reading of The Laramie Project, along with an introduction from Nate Phelps and a talkback with Nate and the actors after the reading on the 26th. A portion of ticket sales will go towards the Matthew Shepard Foundation and the rest will go towards a scholarship fund for our students.
