Primary Trust

Primary Trust 

By Eboni Booth, Directed by Malkia Stampley

October 5 – November 3 in the Owen Theatre

Opening Night is October 13, 2023

An open-hearted, “utterly absorbing, very funny, darn near perfect play” (The Daily Beast) about leaving your comfort zone to find fulfillment.

Meet Kenneth, a 38-year-old longtime bookstore worker, who is perfectly content with his after-work routine: a mai tai (or two) at the local tiki bar. But when his employer decides to close the store, Kenneth must also turn the page and choose a new direction—including some daring steps into a world he has evaded. BOLD Producer Malkia Stampley makes her Goodman directing debut with this “tender, delicately detailed portrait” (The New York Times Critic’s Pick) about new beginnings.
