Harry is rich. Harry is married. But when Harry doesn't trust that any of it is enough, he looks to find something real in the most unlikely of places. This dark comedy explores the corrosive effect of power on relationships and the hope we need to make them better.
"…quick-moving comedy…Mr. Weitz understands the nastiness that lurks within sweet, passive men." —NY Times. "Funny, crisp and modern, it's solid, provocative theater—trust me." —Entertainment Weekly. "…delights in rattling people out of their complacency…clever, funny dialogue…Weitz has also wisely refrained from allowing his characters unmitigated happy endings. The thread of melancholy and loneliness that runs throughout TRUST never snaps, even as each member of the quartet appears to get what he or she needs most." —NY Press. "Four stars. It is not often that we get a truly amoral play: clever, funny, evil, totally misanthropic. But that describes Paul Weitz's TRUST…The bossing or being bossed is both comic and abject, both scary and ludicrous. Weitz's writing is always trenchant, humorously unsettling, and horribly believable. People may be bugs, as Prudence remarks, but here they are bugs gifted with prime dialogue." —Bloomberg News.
