||Big Dawg Productions presents The Laramie Project at Cape Fear Playhouse in Wilmington, NC. The play is based on the 1998 killing of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old gay man left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. The Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over a year and a half, conducting more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. The Laramie Project explores the depths to which humanity can sink, and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. Please note: The Sunday performance is a matinee beginning at 3pm.
