VU brings the "The Laramie Project" to JasperApril 3, 2013
From local sources
JASPER — The Vincennes University Theatre Department will present “The Laramie Project” at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 20 at the Jasper Arts Center.
“The Laramie Project,” by Moises Kaufman, began in November 1998, one month after Matthew Shepard’s murder on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyo. Kaufman conducted interviews with more than 200 Laramie residents to document how they were coping with the reality of the brutal hate crime that was perpetrated by two area youths.
The play tries to capture the emotions, reflections and reactions of the people of Laramie who were most closely related to the crime, and asks the audience to call into question the beliefs and values that form the very bedrock of modern society: faith, tolerance, forgiveness, community and the desire for truth.
“The Laramie Project” is one of the most produced plays in America. This staging is directed by Eric Margerum, VU dean of social sciences. Shane Denu, a student at VU Jasper Campus, will act in the production.
The performance is free and tickets are not required, but seating is limited to 125 people.
