Stephen Belber

Published by Dramatists Play Service

3 Male 2 Female

When Delaware journalist Rick Dayne meets death row inmate Darius McReele, the articles Rick writes lead to Darius' exoneration from a sixteen-year murder conviction

Darius' sympathetic past and magnetic personality make him a darling of the lecture circuit, leading to national attention and political viability

With his past and future in the balance, Darius walks the line, as Rick seeks to determine which way he'll ultimately fall

"Truth seeking is a hot topic in drama these days, and Stephen Belber adds to the debate with McCreele, a juicy crime-and-politics thriller that spans the gamut of evidence-testing, from forensics to the search for authentic identity. But Belber is no trend-follower; in previous works such as Tape and Match, the playwright has shown a flair for teasing apart his characters' subjective memories. Belber favors fast-talkers who use chitchat, digression and eloquent bluster to maneuver their way out of tricky situationsLike any good playwright, he is less interested in determining what's real than in exploiting what makes solid fiction" ~ Time Out

"Stephen Belber's new play, has a lot on its mind - truth and honesty in public and private life, media manipulation, faith in the judicial system, the packaging of a political persona, redemption from past disgrace" ~ Variety
