Primary Trust Information
Eboni Booth's Primary Trust makes its world premiere in spring 2023 off Broadway. Check back for information on Primary Trust tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
The Primary Trust play centers on 36-year-old Kenneth, who works at a bookstore by day and drinks mai tais at the tiki bar by night. His life changes when he gets abruptly laid off, and he needs a fresh start. Urged on by an eccentric waiter, he discovers the world anew, and his life transforms in unexpected and even comical ways.
Booth is a writer and actor whose last Off-Broadway show was Paris. That show, about a group of big-box store workers, premiered at Atlantic Theater Company in 2020. She has also performed in Off-Broadway shows including Dance Nation, After the Blast, The Cider House Rules, and Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. On TV, Booth has appeared in shows like The Good Fight and Daredevil.
Knud Adams directs Primary Trust off Broadway. In 2022, he directed I'm Revolting and the award-winning English, both at Atlantic Theater Company. Both those shows were also world premieres. Primary Trust marks his Roundabout Theatre Company debut.
Starring in Primary Trust in New York is William Jackson Harper, an Emmy Award nominee for playing Chidi Anagonye on The Good Place and the star of The Resort on Peacock. Also starring is April Matthis, a veteran New York theatre actress who made her Broadway debut in 2022's The Piano Lesson opposite Samuel L. Jackson.
