“This tightly choreographed show, under Mr. Steiner and Mr. Richardson’s meticulous direction, proceeds at a well-oiled clip. None of the appealing actors can be singled out above the rest…Though that notorious chapter in homophobia has been addressed before, “Veritas” makes it agonizingly vivid.”

-Andy Webster, The New York Times

“Witty, sophisticated and involving…VERITAS is a masterfully written, directed, performed and presented play [that] immerses the audience in the past while reminding us that judgement and prejudice are still rampant today.” 

-Leslie Dileo, Hi! Drama

“Veritas is deeply moving and expertly conceived. Developed with care in all aspects, the duo behind The Representatives have produced yet another impressive and stirring evening of theater which is simultaneously humorous, tragic and inspiring at any given moment.”
