Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Developed after the murder of openly gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in 1998, The Laramie Project gives voice to the real life testimony of more than 50 residents of Laramie, Wyoming, as they struggle to come to terms with the event and the questions raised in the wake of violence.Developed after the murder of openly gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in 1998, The Laramie Project gives voice to the real life testimony of more than 50 residents of Laramie, Wyoming, as they struggle to come to terms with the event and the questions raised in the wake of violence.

Laramie premiered in New York in 2000, playing to rave reviews and impassioned audiences. Time Magazine called it “one of the ten best plays of the year,” and it has since become one of the most performed plays in North America.

Studio 180 was honoured to present its Canadian professional premiere at the Artword Theatre in 2003, in the acclaimed production that launched our company. In response to this tremendous success, in 2004 we remounted Laramie in association with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre as part of their 25th anniversary season.
