The Marriage Counselor is adapted from Perry's 10th play, which began touring in 2008. The story centers around a married couple – an accountant and an Ivy League-educated marriage counselor – whose relationship begins to fall apart after his displaced parents move in.

The marriage counselor, Judith, stops practicing what she preaches when she rekindles a relationship with an old college flame.
