Lubbock, Texas: February 17-19, 24-26, March 2-4, 2012: The Lubbock Community Theatre will stage The Laramie Project.

Their description of the play:

In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. He died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was assaulted because he was gay. Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from over 200 interviews of people from Laramie and their own experiences after the beating and death. The Laramie Project is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.


I previously saw The Laramie Project performed at Texas Tech University, and saw the HBO movie version. Both were good.
