Primary Stages Rounds Out Its 2015-16 Season With Fourth New York Premiere

Topher Payne premieres a comedy set during the 1950s Red Scare.

Topher Payne presents the New York premiere of his new comedy Perfect Arrangement at Primary Stages.

The New York premiere of Topher Payne's Perfect Arrangement will be the fourth and final production of Primary Stages' 2015-16 season. Directed by Michael Barakiva, performances will run from September-November at the Duke on 42nd Street.

Presented in association with MARS Theatricals, Perfect Arrangement is a comedy set in the age of the Red Scare where the Martindales and the Baxters have manufactured a life as peppy as a sitcom, right down to the corny jokes and occasional product placement. However, the worlds of I Love Lucy and Edward R. Murrow clash when a coworker at the U.S. State Department discovers their deepest secret.

Directors have also been announced for the previously announced productions set for the 2015-16 season. The New York premiere of Deborah Zoe Laufer's Informed Consent, opening in August will be directed by Liesl Tommy; the New York premiere of Dan O'Brien's The Body of an American, opening February 2016, will be directed by Jo Bonney; and the New York premiere of Ike Holter's Exit Strategy, opening March 2016, will be directed by Kip Fagan.
