In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. 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.

Tacoma Little Theatre is proud to end its 94th season with The Laramie Project directed by Brie Yost, by Moisés Kaufman and the Members of the Tectonic Theater Project. This production is supported in part through Arts Projects funding of the Tacoma Arts Commission.
