Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, President/CEO, in memoriam; Scott Ellis, Interim Artistic Director) world-premiere production of Primary Trust by Eboni Booth, directed by Knud Adams features Eric Berryman as “Bert,” Emmy winner William Jackson Harper as “Kenneth,” Obie winner April Matthis as “Wally’s Waiter & others,” Jay O. Sanders as “Clay & others,” and Luke Wygodny as “musician.”


William Jackson Harper (“The Resort”) returns to the stage as Kenneth, a 36-year-old bookstore worker who spends his evenings sipping mai tais with his best friend Bert at a local tiki bar. When he's suddenly laid off, Kenneth is encouraged by a quirky waiter, played by Obie Award winner April Matthis (Toni Stone), to face a world he's long avoided – with transformative and even comical results. Directed by Knud Adams, Eboni Booth’Primary Trust is a touching and inventive world-premiere play about new beginnings, old friends, and seeing the world for the first time.
