“The Laramie Project” -- a chronicle of the life of a Wyoming town following the 1998 kidnapping and murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard, will will launch the Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts’ 34th Mainstage season on the University’s Evanston campus. Named by Time magazine as "one of the ten best plays of the year,” the breadth of the community’s reactions to the crime is crafted into a fascinating theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
