The Laboratory Theater of Florida’s Scripts Uncensored tackles The Laramie Project on April 28th

FORT MYERS, FL (April 22, 2024)  Scripts Uncensored, The Laboratory Theater of Florida’s banned literature reading club, meets monthly to read scripts that have been removed, challenged, or outright banned across the country. This month, the script is The Laramie Project by Moisés Kaufmann and The Tectonic Theater Project. 

The Laramie Project is the story of the community’s reaction to the 1998 murder of a gay University of Wyoming student, Matthew Shepard. The play is set in Laramie, Wyoming, and uses the actual words of the town’s residents, pulled from interview transcripts, to create a complex portrait of a community confrontation with itself. 

Each month of Scripts Uncensored includes a table read of a play followed by a discussion about the play, the social and political climate that existed when it was written, and why it has been challenged today. Each month is led by a different theater professional. 

Thanks to a generous donation, this event is FREE to our community. Registration is available on the Lab Theater website.
