Montgomery Playhouse in partnership with The Gaithersburg Arts Barn presents:

The Laramie Project

June 9 – 25, 2023

Performances are Friday & Saturday at 8 PM, and Sunday at 2 PM
$22 / $20 Student (ages 15 – 21)


In October 1998, 21-year-old Matthew Shepard, an openly gay college student, was brutally beaten & left to die on the plains outside Laramie, Wyoming. Hailed as one of the most captivating & encompassing pieces of contemporary theater, The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink & the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

This play is based on a true story and includes strong language & mature content that some may find upsetting, including descriptions of homophobia, violence & death. Recommended for ages 15 & up.

A traveling exhibit from the Matthew Shepard Foundation to be on display in the Arts Barn gallery during the production run. June 10 & 11 performances will feature ASL Interpreters. Please call the Arts Barn to reserve seating to better view the interpreters. The June 11 performance will feature a cast & crew talkback following the performance.

Online ticket sales end two hours prior to performance. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Arts Barn box office or by contacting the Arts Barn.
