Steven Dietz

Published by Dramatists Play Service

2 Male 4 Female

This is a contemporary dramatic comedy set against a backdrop of the rock music scene

In a world ruled by love, lust and lying, a spiral unwinds

Cody is a rising star musician. Becca is his fiancèe

Gretchen is a dressmaker, fitting Becca for her wedding dress

Leah is a rock star past her prime who Cody meets while on the road. Roy is a public radio announcer smitten with the young bohemian, Holly

As the lives and loves of these people continue to intersect, attraction gives way to seduction, and secrecy holds sway over truth

Becca and Cody's marriage-to-be grows as rocky as Roy increases his hilariously futile attempts to charm Holly

Gretchen and Leah's past is unearthed, brought on by Gretchen's attraction to Becca

As the final concert of Cody's tour concludes, new bonds have been formed, old wounds remain; friends looking for answers, lovers looking for that elusive word: trust


"Steven Dietz has got it right-and made it fresh. A rock 'n' roll La Ronde, Trust sketches out the bumps and grinds of coupling and uncoupling in the '90s. Braced with smart, quick dialogue, it is informed by sharp knowingness and an appreciation that, hey, there have been those hot momentsDietz has a literary leaning, which results in some delightful flights of languageThough the play's supposed theme is "trust," it's really about the fleetingness of passion. And the way it circles back on itself etches in its meaning for a sharper pang" ~ Village Voice
