Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) announced the world premiere of PRIMARY TRUST by playwright Eboni Booth, directed by Knud Adams, will star Emmy Award nominee William Jackson Harper ("The Underground Railroad”) and Obie and Outer Critics Circle Award winner April Matthis (The Piano Lesson).

Meet Kenneth, a 36-year-old bookstore worker who spends his evenings sipping mai tais at the local tiki bar. When he’s suddenly laid off, Kenneth finally begins to face a world he's long avoided – with transformative and even comical results. Directed by Knud Adams, Eboni Booth’s PRIMARY TRUST is a touching and inventive world-premiere play about new beginnings, old friends, and seeing the world for the first time.


Major Support for PRIMARY TRUST provided by The Laura Pels International.
