NIA Theatrical Production Company is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating young Artists and bringing arts programs to under-served communities in NYC. We began operations in 1998 in part to address the paucity of career opportunities for artists of color.
 
We facilitate our mission through our Play Development and Music Production programs for Emerging Artists, and our Art-in Education programs for school systems. We conduct most of our program activities in under-served areas of Brooklyn, NY including Brownsville, East New York, and Bedford-Stuyvesant. We also recruit/develop playwrights and musical artists from these communities as well as from school systems in these areas.
 
Since 1998, more than 14 playwrights, 10 musicians, and many actors, directors and technical personnel have honed their skills through our programs. We are proud to note that over 30 school systems have used our arts programs to enhance their students educational quality.

Production History

Deceit Of Truth: A Chronicle In Two Parts  | Open: 03/22/11 Close: 03/27/11
Deceit of Truth: A Chronicle in Two Parts is about a group of longtime friends who find their relationships tested when a heated debate stirs up questions about sex, duplicity, race, and guilt.  The conflict between Bernadette and her fiancé Christian is peeled back layer by layer as half truths and deceptions within this circle of friends test their boundaries.  Is Danielle’s jealousy of Barry founded?  Is Malik’s innocent flirtation truly innocent?

In Part One, "Mating Dance of the Scarlet Honeyeater", the characters find themselves in a heated discussion around gender, sex, attraction and privilege, while the undercurrent hints at secrets that arise as conflict.  The possibility of hidden passions threatens the stability of certain relationships and “Mating Dance” ends with a choice unanswered.  Part Two, "It's In His Kiss” continues the story several hours later.  As more of the drama unfolds, the evening twisting into a rollercoaster of emotions, testing these relationships.  Revelations of secrets and hidden passions, half truths and deceptions lead to an explosive climax that will leave the audience questioning what is Truth.   Ultimately Deceit of Truth allows the audience to confront how one processes information as it relates to a person's history, thus coloring perception and how this informs truth as we know it.

What masks do you wear?  What games do you play?  What is your truth?
