The Laramie Project

Directed by Shelley Liebembuk

March 2023

The Laramie Project is a modern classic. Created by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project, this verbatim theatre piece is constructed from the transcripts of over 200 interviews, conducted in the aftermath of the brutal murder of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man, in Laramie, Wyoming, in 1998. The piece reveals a community grappling with violence, responsibility, and healing; and showcases how theatre can be a brave space for us to engage with this together.

Shelley Liebembuk is an Assistant Professor at UFV Theatre. As an educator, Shelley’s focus is on praxis-based learning and inspiring creative and critical engagement in the studio and the seminar. Shelley’s theatre scholarship is informed by her professional work as an actor and dramaturg. Her current research projects are on contemporary multilingual performance ensembles and remote acting pedagogy.
