    Daniel Goldfarb has a fine first draft in his new play "Sarah, Sarah" at Manhattan Theatre Club's Stage II. The theme is strong, but the characters and plotline are underdeveloped.

    TRUST ME

    In playwright/director Richard Redlin's crisply executed but slight one-act, trust is the one thing missing: Omnipresent instead are spite, greed, and sublimated hate.
