This powerful story is about a chosen son's quest for truth. Vincent, a bright young lawyer in the Public Defender department has been assigned to defend a young woman accused of killing her three-week-old son. Hounded by his community and haunted by his past, Vincent struggles to defend both neglectful mothers: his client, and his own.
A thought-provoking and beautifully written play, The Good Counselor literally prompts the audience to serve as the jury in determining what it means to be a good parent.
“Unsettling drama…Ms. Grant doesn’t fall into the trap of oversimplifying her characters or seeing only one side of a relationship…this is a sign of Ms. Grant’s ingenuity as a playwright.” –The New York Times
“Playwright Kathryn Grant is a promising talent with a sharp ear for dialogue…The Good Counselor is engrossing, thoughtful and thought-provoking, and worthy of our attention.” –Talkin’ Broadway
