Primary Stages has announced casting for the world premiere of Rx, by Kate Fodor. Ethan McSweeny will direct the production, which will play 59E59 Theaters, January 24-March 3, with an opening on February 7.

In the play, Meena Pierotti's job is making her unhappy. Luckily, there's a pill for that. Well, not yet. Meena has joined the clinical trial for a new drug targeting workplace depression. The trial gets messy, however, when she falls in love with her doctor, who himself is trying to enroll in a drug trial targeting heartbreak.

The cast will feature Michael Bakkensen, Marylouise Burke, Marin Hinkle, Stephen Kunken, Paul Niebanck, and Elizabeth Rich.

The production will have set design by Lee Savage, costume design by Andrea Lauer, and original music and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
