Equal Truth Productions Launches in NYC

"EQUAL Truth Productions is a theater company founded on the belief that every human being has a unique truth of their own that is worth sharing, and that no one's truth has more value than anyone else's." Thus rings the mission of this brand new theater company run by a small group of artists with big goals.

Founded by Grace Merriman, a recent graduate of the NYU Tisch Drama program, Equal Truth Productions is a passion project born out of what can only be described as a deep rooted need for change.

"I started this company, because I got tired of the pervasive white-washing of the American stage, and I wanted to do something about it. I believe theater should represent the wonderful diversity of the United States of America, and of the World," said Grace Merriman

Their mission also states, "We are dedicated to representing the voices of artists from every race, gender, creed and sexual orientation or identity, and to finding stories that highlight the voices of the unheard, the unheeded, and the under-represented.

"It is our primary goal to create a space in which to foster the creative talent of people and groups whose stories are often overlooked. At Equal Truth we celebrate diversity as well as the individuality of our respective, personal, human experiences."

Their very first show is going to be a production of 'LYSISTRATA' directed by Julie Lucas at 13th Street Repertory Theatre in New York City's Greenwich Village, December 17-20, 2015.

The cast includes: Marissa Carpio, Lida Darmian, Adam Donovan, Toussaint JeanLouis, Liz Leimkuhler, Grace Merriman, Kisha MillingMichael Ring, Jorge I. Sanchéz, Thanos Skouteris, and Michelle Vo.
