NFCT Presents The Laramie Project Running through March 13, 2022

The North Fork Community Theatre in Mattituck, NY, is proud to announce its production of The Laramie Project, a seminal work of documentary theatre.

Hailed as one of the most captivating and encompassing pieces of contemporary theater, The Laramie Project shocks, challenges, and moves all who watch it as it reveals the lowest depths of hatred and greatest heights of compassion that lies within all human beings in any seemingly average community.

About the Production:

The Laramie Project By Moisés Kaufman and the Members of the Tectonic Theater Project.

In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His
name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard.
They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were
citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating.

$20, available online at, over the phone at (631) 298-NFCT, and at the box office starting an hour before performances.


March 11, 12, and 13* at 8:00pm, with Sunday performances at 2:30pm.
