​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Laramie Project by Moises Kaufman and the members of Tectonic Theatre Company

Year 11 Political Theatre Production​​

On November fourteen, nineteen ninety-eight, the members of Tectonic Theatre Project travelled to Laramie, Wyoming, and conducted interviews with the people of the town in the aftermath of the murder of twenty-one-year-old University student, Matthew Shepard. The play, edited from verbatim transcripts recorded over a year after the event, explores the divisive attitudes towards gay people in Laramie and how the people of the small community heal and respond to the tragic hate-crime.

The Year 11 Theatre Ensemble, in collaboration with Music and Film students are proud to share this incredibly important story with the QACI community. Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's theory of Epic Theatre and Tectonic's contemporary approach to “moment work" students will use all the plasticity of the stage to focus on the hope held within the town, as well as the ideas of love, loss, grief and acceptance.

This production is suitable for mature audiences and contains some moments that may be sensitive for some viewers.​
