THE LARAMIE PROJECT: 10 YEARS LATER By Moises Kauffman and the Tectonic Theatre Project
"A Pioneering and Powerful Stage Event" - Time Magazine
The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later is the epilogue to the iconic The Laramie Project. Edited together from interviews within the community of Laramie, Wyoming following the murder of Matthew Shepherd in an apparent hate crime.
The epilogue is 100% verbatim with 8 of New Zealand's finest young actors playing a multitude of roles; from cops to priests, mothers to criminals. Heartfelt, sometimes humorous and provoking -TLP:10 is a work that calls for talk about social change towards prejudice, violence and homophobia.
TLP: 10 shows us not only how far we've come, but how far we have still to go in the fight for true equality. It also illustrates the important role that freedom of speech plays in helping us to get there.
The story belongs to Laramie, but its message is universal.
Starring: Leon Wadham, Sophie Hambleton, Shadon Meredith, Renee Lyons, Martyn Wood, Simon Leary, Sophie Roberts.
