The National Endowment for the Arts awarded a $10,000 taxpayer-funded grant to a theater company in San Francisco to produce and tour a collection of plays advocating same-sex marriage called “Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays.”

Directed by Sara Staley and conceived by Brian Shnipper, the project is a “collection of plays by established playwrights created in response to the ongoing battle for marriage equality throughout the United States,” a copy of the grant award states.

The project has been touted by Variety as “a celebration of gay marriage” and features a slew of famous TV, film and Broadway actors such as Craig Bierko of “Sex and the City” fame and Tony Award winner Harriet Sansom Harris.
