Westborough High School Center Stage Theater Company presents a unique theatrical event: The Laramie Project Cycle. Originally conceived and created by Moisés Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project, The Laramie Project Cycle consists of two plays: The Laramie Project and The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later.

Together, these two plays address the harsh truths of a tragic, real life event: the murder of 21 year old Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998. Both pieces were written through a process of conducting interviews, and are told through real life characters with honest reactions to the event.The Laramie Project Cycle explores the concept of tragedy and how tragic events affect the larger communities in which they occur. The focus of Center Stage Theater Company’s production is to explore how the town of Laramie has not only been affected by the Matthew Shepard incident, but also has rebuilt its identity, and retold its story in the aftermath of this iconic event that has shaped our history.

Performances of The Laramie Project Cycle will be as follows:

Part One--The Laramie Project: Friday, November 7th @ 7:30pm, Saturday, November 8th @ 2:00pm

Part Two--The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later: Saturday, November 8th @ 7:30pm, Sunday, November 9th @ 2:00pm


Westborough High School Charlotte Spinney Auditorium
90 West Main Street, Westborough, MA
