Complete casting has been set for Primary Trust, a new play by Eboni Booth that continues Roundabout Theatre Company's spring season. Off-Broadway performances run from May 4 to July 2, with opening night on May 25.

Joining the previously announced William Jackson Harper (Emmy nominee for The Good Place) as Kenneth and April Matthis (The Piano Lesson) as Wally’s Waiter are Eric Berryman (Atlanta) as Bert and Jay O. Sanders (Girl From the North Country) as Clay.

Primary Trust centers on Kenneth, a mid-30s bookstore worker who gets a new lease on life after getting laid off. Encouraged by an eccentric waiter, he breaks from his usual routine and faces a world he's been avoiding.

Knud Adams (English, I'm Revolting) directs Primary Trust off Broadway.

Performances are staged at the Laura Pels Theater, which currently hosts Anna Ziegler's The Wanderers, starring Katie Holmes, through April 2.
