Dr. Brett D. Johnson of the Mercyhurst Theatre Program directs this student production that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable. This deeply moving play centers on the life of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard of Laramie, Wyo., who was beaten to death because he was gay. The Laramie Project is written by Moisés Kaufman and the members of Tectonic Theater Project. Performance times are Thursday-Saturday, April 24-26, at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, April 27, at 2 p.m. at Taylor Little Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and students, and $5 for Mercyhurst students and youth (12 and under). Tickets can be purchased by calling 814-824-3000 or by visiting
