Meet Kenneth, a 38-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.
Roundabout Theatre Company continues its Off-Broadway season with Primary Trust, Eboni Booth's new play about old friends and new starts. Set an alert for Primary Trust tickets on TodayTix.
The main character of the Primary Trust play is Kenneth. The 36-year-old works at a bookstore by day and haunts his local tiki bar, sipping mai tais, by night. That is, until he's laid off. But what seems like an ending might actually be a new beginning. Encouraged by a quirky waiter, he finally faces a world he's avoided for a long time, and his life transforms.
Eboni Booth makes her Roundabout playwriting debut with the world premiere of Primary Trust. Her other best-known Off-Broadway work is Paris, a working-class drama about underpaid employees at a big-box store. That show premiered at Atlantic Theater Company in 2020 and marked Booth's Off-Broadway writing debut.
Director Knud Adams is known for directing world premieres — in 2022, he directed English, which won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, and I'm Revolting at Atlantic Theater Company.
