by Nancy Holley

Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney had no idea that their actions, rooted in ignorant fear, would cause a community to unravel and send waves of shock and disbelief across a nation. The Laramie Project is a docu-drama created by the Tectonic Theater Project in search of answers. Why was Matthew Shepard savagely attacked? Was Laramie, WY a town filled with hate? What could have been done to prevent the actions of Henderson and McKinney?
