"On October 7, 1988, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in a shocking act of hate ... In the aftermath, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie and conducted more than 200 interviews with its people. From the transcripts, the playwrights constructed an extraordinary chronicle of life there after the murder ... Now, in this expanded edition, The Laramie Project : ten years later adds an essential coda to the original work, revisiting the town a decade after the tragedy to find a community grappling with its legacy and place in history"--

"This film is based on transcripts of over 200 interviews with the people of Laramie, Wyoming."--Title screens. In October 1998, 21 year-old Matthew Shepard had been found savagely beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die. National media attention made his case a cause célèbre, and a month later, off Broadway writer-director Moisés Kaufman and Tectonic Theatre (his collaborating actors) arrived. They succeeded in interviewing a wide range of relevant persons, from those who knew Shepard or knew the accused to police, university, and hospital personnel and community members. Then they wrote a play
Gross indecency : the three trials of Oscar Wilde by Moisés Kaufman( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and French and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 1895 Oscar Wilde brought a libel suit against the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of his youthful lover, who had publicly maligned him as a sodomite. In doing so, England's reigning man of letters set in motion a series of events that would culminate in his ruin and imprisonment. For within a year the bewildered Wilde himself was on trial for acts of "gross indecency" and - implicity - for a vision of art that outraged Victorian propriety." "In this work of the theater - a smash hit Off Broadway - Moises Kaufman turns the trials of Oscar Wilde into a riveting human and intellectual drama. Expertly interweaving courtroom testimony with excerpts from Wilde's writings and the words of his contemporaries, Gross Indecency unveils its subject in all his genius and human frailty, his age in all its complacency and repression."--Jacket

"The play simultaneously examines the creative process behind Beethoven's Diabelli Variations and the journey of a musicologist, Katherine Brandt, to discover the meaning behind why Beethoven was compelled to write thirty-three distinct variations on a simple theme by a minor music publisher. The progression of her Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and her relationship with her daughter are also themes of the story, as is Beethoven's growing deafness."--Wilipedia, accessed 04/13/2016

The Laramie project by Moisés Kaufman( Recording )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This] play document[s] the aftermath of the savage killing of Matthew Shepard, including the perspectives of both friends and strangers ... This ... theatrical composition, structured not in scenes, but in "moments," addresses the various issues relating to the tragedy of Shepard, a young gay man whose murder has since become a symbol for America's struggle against intolerance. [The author's] approach is actor-based, as opposed to text-based; a side-effect of this actor-based approach is that in print form it seems as though something is missing. However, the play promises to move the reader with its authentic portrayal of a small town facing a terrifying event.-http://www.amazon.com
