The Laramie project by Moiss Kaufman( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Laramie Project chronicles the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder, using eight actors to embody more than sixty different people in their own words - from rural ranchers to university professors. The result is a complex portrayal that dispels the simplistic media stereotypes and explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable."--Jacket

"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 Moiss Kaufman( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 769 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 Laramie Project and the Laramie Project : ten years later by Moiss Kaufman( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Matthew Shepard's death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of the town, the event was deeply personal. 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. The Laramie Project has become both a modern classic--one of the most-performed theater pieces in America--and a powerful tool of activism. 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. The two plays comprise a deeply moving theatrical cycle that explores the depths to which humanity can sink--and the heights of compassion to which we can rise"--
