Clemson University

The Laramie Project

A play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project. 

In 1998, Matthew Shepard, a 21 year old University of Wyoming student, was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming.  He died several days later in a local hospital.  Matthew Shephard was brutalized and left to die because he was gay.  The Laramie Project, created by the Tectonic Theatre Company in response to the events surrounding Shepard's murder is a theatrical collage exploring the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights to which it can soar.

Warning:  the material contains references to violent acts.

We know this is a difficult time for many from a physical, emotional and financial perspective.  If you are in a position to support The Clemson Players during this time, your generosity would be tremendously appreciated.
