The Laramie Project
PRESENTED BY THE VILLAGE THEATRE
Join us for a riviting night at the theatre. Options available for show only, dinner and a lunch matinee. Click the link below to review show times and ticket prices.
In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severly beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, burised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Sheppard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moises Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theatre Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Sheppard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the bredth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constucted a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Jerry Leger: At heart, Canadian singer-songwriter Jerry Leger is driven by a quest to convey in his own manner the purity embedded in the grooves of the vintage rock, country and blues recordings he so dearly loves. This trait attracted support from fellow singer/songwriters like Doug Paisley, Jim Lauderdale, Ron Sexsmith (who has called him “one of the best songwriters I’ve heard in quite some time”)and his staunchest ally, producer and label head Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies, who signed Jerry to his label, Latent Recordings in 2013. He has been called “one of Canada’s best” by Exclaim! and a “gifted storyteller” by The Toronto Star. His latest release, ‘Nonsense and Heartache’ is a 2-record set showcasing the two major musical sides of him. The idea was sphere headed by Timmins with ‘Nonsense’ displaying Leger’s rock ‘n’ roll and bluesy grit while ‘Heartache’ is a more folk-roots-melodic expression. WEBSITE: http://www.jerryleger.com

These jams typically happened at family gatherings and campfires to small crowds of friends and family around Southern Ontario. It was these musical moments that ignited Dave’s ambition for songwriting and creative work.
