Theatre Unleashed is back with Steven Dietz’s Trust


The rarely-produced classic work from the contemporary master playwright marks the
first show Theatre Unleashed will perform in its NEW HOME, Upstairs at the Crown.

LOSANGELES – This has been an exciting summer for TheatreUnleashed.

First the company once again made noise at the 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival,
earning a “Best in Ensemble Theatre” nomination for its signature show 25 Plays Per
Hour and a “Best in Musicals andOperas” nomination for the co-produced festival hit
[title of show].

And now, the company is ready to take residence in the NoHo Arts District in the
brand new theater, Upstairs at the Crown. Partnering with the renowned Crown City
Theatre Co., TU has been designing and building the space to give the company a home,
allowing for(among other benefits) more flexibility in programming. To launch the
new space at 11031 Camarillo St. in North Hollywood, Theatre Unleashed is extremely
proud to present Trust by acclaimed playwright Steven Dietz, running Oct.3-Nov. 9,
Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m.

As the newly-crowned prince of Rock n' Roll, Cody is living a charmed life, which
leads his fiancé Becca to seek her own adventure in the strangers around her. Enter
Gretchen to design Becca's wedding dress, and perhaps provide something else she’s
been missing.As their friendship grows, Gretchen reveals the intimate time she
shared with former rock icon Leah Barnett, who has some how found her way into Cody’s
life. Meanwhile,Public Radio announcer Roy is trying to find that one woman who
understands him. His seemingly endless quest eventually leads him to their friend
Holly, ayoung bohemian who would rather spend her nights with famous people new
and old. As the song says, “love is all you need,” but in a world fueled by
passionand beauty, maybe something much more vital and fragile is the key: Trust.
“Dietzis a master of creating dynamic and realistic characters,” said Director
ScottMarden (who was last seen at the helm of the Hollywood Fringe Festival
FavoriteIt’s Important to Leave, As Well). “Thisplay in particular highlights the
number of characters that we all play in ourdaily lives. Whether it's the soft
spoken publisher's assistant who isn'tsaying what she really thinks of the
distributor taking her out to dinner; orthe former rock star pretending not to care
as the new star rises to fame. It makes you wonder how well you really know the
people closest to you, or even yourself.”

Trust will also be followed by a Late Night show that will feature new original
scripts from a group of writers being performed by the same cast of actors week
after week (more details later). On Oct. 19, in the Late Night slot, the company
will also bring back its 24-Hour Theatre Event with a Halloween-themed show. It’sthis
kind of diversity in programming that led Theatre Unleashed to setting upshop in the
new space.
“We've been nomadic for almost the entirety of our existence,” said Managing Director
Gregory Crafts. “I'm very excited to finally settle down and establish some roots,
especially in a wonderful and supportive neighborhood like the NoHo Arts District. I
think finally having a home will allow us to make some very big strides both
artistically and as an organization.”
