TRUST follows the success story of Harry, an unassuming yet savvy guy who has become an overnight internet millionaire with all the lavish trimmings. But beneath Harry’s affable and affluent surface lies dissatisfaction, both with his success and his sexless marriage to an equally unhappy artist.
Following the smash hit, Death and Harry Houdini, third generation magician Dennis Watkins reappears in THE MAGNIFICENTS. This original story by Watkins features an extraordinary family that brings magical entertainment to adoring audiences.
For seven years Emma and Jerry engage in a passionate love affair, deceiving their spouses, each other and, at times, even themselves. One of the 20th century’s most influential dramatists, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, innovatively explores the complexities of love, guilt and duplicity.
