Actors' Equity on Friday sided with actress Vanessa Redgrave in a dispute in which she claims she was barred for political reasons from appearing in the national tour of a hit Broadway play. The executive council of the actors' union decided to file a grievance against the producers of "Lettice and Lovage" based on Redgrave's "submission that she was not hired for the proposed tour . . . as a direct result of political statements she made," according to an Equity statement.

An arbitrator has ruled that Vanessa Redgrave was not the victim of political discrimination or "blacklisting" when she lost her job in a proposed tour of the comedy "Lettice and Lovage." The producers of the tour believed that "because of public reaction" to Redgrave's statements regarding the Gulf War, the tour "was no longer economically viable," wrote arbitrator Daniel Collins. But they did not act out of their own "animus to Redgrave's political belief," he concluded.
