The Laramie Project is a play performed in a postmodern format in which the writers, who are also the actors, use the words of people they have previously interviewed as the dialogue of the play.
Tectonic Theater members made it their creative project to visit the town of Laramie, Wyoming, to interview the townspeople about the murder of Matthew Shepard. The theater group then constructed a play based on the interviews. The title comes from the town's name, Laramie, and the word project indicates the process of the play's creation. The word tectonic means having a powerful and far-ranging impact, particularly when applied to political or social issues.
