Overview

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 fianc�e. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Village Voice
Steven Dietz has got it right�and made it fresh. A rock 'n' roll 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 moments...Dietz has a literary leaning, which results in some delightful flights of language...Though 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.
