Ethan McSweeny (Gore Vidal's The Best Man, Sabina) directs the production that will run through March 3.

Kunken (Enron, Frost/Nixon), Burke (Kimberly Akimbo, Fuddy Meers) and Hinkle ("Two and a Half Men," LCT3's Graceland) are joined by Michael Bakkensen (Noises Off, Festen), Paul Niebanck (In the Next Room…, Shockheaded Peter) and Elizabeth Rich (Cherry Orchard, A Tale of Two Cities).

According to Primary Stages, "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."

Rx has set design by Lee Savage, costume design by Andrea Lauer, lighting design by Matthew Richards, original music and sound design by Lindsay Jones and prop supervision by Faye Armon.

Fodor is the playwright of 100 Saints You Should Know, which was produced Off-Broadway by Playwrights Horizons in 2007. She is also the author of Hannah and Martin. Her plays have been produced by Steppenwolf, Epic Theatre Ensemble, San Jose Repertory Theatre, London's Courtyard Theatre and Chicago's TimeLine Theatre, among others.
