CANCELED: Reading - The Laramie Project

Due to the COVID-19 crisis and out of concern for public health, all Georgetown University Department of Performing Arts events are canceled through the end of the spring 2020 semester, while academic courses continue online.


Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 8 p.m.
Sunday, March 29 at 2 p.m.

Mask and Bauble Dramatic Society (student-produced)

by Moisés Kaufman and the Members of Tectonic Theater Project
Directed by Josh Mauss (SFS ‘20)

The Laramie Project finds itself in Laramie, Wyoming in the very public aftermath of the murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. Compiled from company journals, news reports, and transcripts of the hundreds of hours of interviews conducted by members of the Tectonic Theatre Project, The Laramie Project opens a window to 1998 Laramie using the words of those who experienced the events firsthand. Matthew Shepard’s death echoed throughout the country and world as a watershed moment in the gay rights movement and the progress of hate crime legislation in America. It forced Americans to consider the difference between tolerance and acceptance and what it really means to create a society with liberty and justice for all.

This event will be the final Stage IV reading of the season. Stage IV productions are no-tech processes that require minimal rehearsal time and offer low-stress opportunities for directors and actors.
