Ten years ago, MoisÃ©s Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project traveled to Laramie, Wy. after the senseless murder of University of Wyoming gay student Matthew Shepard. Kaufman and his troupe of actors conducted dozens of interviews. The result was The Laramie Project, a play divided into three acts where eight actors play more the roles of more than 60 Laramie residents, friends and relatives of Matthew Shepard in a series of scenes. On Monday, the Paper Lantern Theatre in Winston-Salem will join with 150 other theatres across the globe in a world premiere staged reading of The Laramie Project. The event will take place at Twin City Stage, located at 610 Coliseum Drive, at 8 p.m. Admission is free. For further info, call 336.721.1310 or visit: www.paperlanterntheatre.com.
