The second in Theatrical Outfit’s repertory of small town American plays is underway.
Moisés Kaufman’s award-winning The Laramie Project is entering its second weekend at The Balzer Theater at Herren’s and will run through September 29. As part of a repertory presentation with Our Town, The former play began performances on September 10. The two plays will overlap this weekend and next, as Encore previously reported.
Below, check out fresh photos and a video from The Laramie Project!
The Laramie Project
In 1998, a university student named Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, beaten, and tied to a prairie fence outside Laramie, Wyoming. When he died days later, the world learned Shepard was targeted because he was gay. A breathtaking collage of the local residents, The Laramie Project is virtuously determined to find the light in an event of harrowing darkness and exposes the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
September 10-29 at The Balzer Theater at Herren’s (84 Luckie St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30303).
