The Laramie Project written by Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theatre Project consists of interviews compiled after the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man. While nearly 18 years have passed since the initial hate crime, recent tragic events such as the Pulse nightclub massacre have reminded us just how relevant this story is. To commemorate the lives lost, the Gloucester County NJ Institute of Technology created the “Laramie Project Project” to seek out forty-nine groups to conduct performances or hold readings of The Laramie Project this year.
Who Is My Neighbor and coLAB Arts, along with the Reformed Church of Highland Park and the TrueSelves Transgender Support Group of the the Pride Center of NJ are proud to be our project partners. Join us for what will be a special Pride Month event that both remembers our tragic past and imagines our progressive future. Our production is in memoriam of Brenda Lee Marquez McCool.
