The Laramie Project was written through a unique collaboration by Tectonic Theater Project. During the  third year-and-a-half development of the play, members of the company and I traveled to Laramie six times to conduct interviews with the people of the town. We transcribed and edited the interviews, then conducted several workshops in which the members of the company presented material and acted as  dramaturgs in the creation of the play.  


 As the volume of material grew with each additional trip to Laramie, a small writers’ group from within the company began to work closely with me to further organize and edit the material, conduct additional  research in Laramie, and collaborate on the writing of the play. This group was led by the Leigh  Fondakowski as Head Writer, with Stephen Belber and Greg Pierotti as Associate Writers.  


As we got closer to the play’s first production in Denver, the actors, including Stephen Belber and Greg  Pierotti, turned their focus to performance, while Leigh Fondakowski continued to work with me on drafts of the play, as did Stephen Wangh, who by then had joined us as an Associate Writer and “bench coach.”
