Characters: 2 male, 3 female

The Good Counselor is a new drama 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.

Winner! 2010 Premiere Stages Play Festival and the 2010 Jerry Kaufman Award in Playwriting

'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

'A searing new play... provides a vivid picture of life's unrelenting hardness, as these people seek small pleasures in their lives, despite their struggles.'
