A B O U T
Stay True Theatre Company is a small theatre company based in New York City, founded in Summer 2019 in honor of World Pride by Andrew Victor Myers and Morgan Bartholick, following a one-off production benefitting Gay Men's Health Crisis. In 2020, Anne Karyna Bakan joined the administrative staff as the company's new Associate Artistic Director. Together, Andrew and Anne strive to produce and support work that embodies the vast medley of identities and groups that comprise the entire LGBTQIA+ community.

The land on which the staff of Stay True live and work, known to us as Manhattan, lies within Lenapehoking, the ancestral lands of the displaced Lenape people, the original caretakers of this land.
As occupiers of an increasingly digital landscape, Stay True Theatre Company recognizes the colonial role of libraries and digital collections, as well as the physical decimation caused to Native lands by the rapid expansion of internet access and data use.
