Counselor is adapted from Perry's tenth play, which began touring in 2008. It explores the deteriorating relationship of a married couple -- an accountant and an Ivy League-educated marriage counselor -- after his displaced father and her displaced mother move in. No cast has yet been set, nor is there a release date.
