FEATHERSTONE (An Appointment in One Act)
""Vincent Truman's one-act is set in the office of a wildly witty and inappropriate psychologist, Dr. Featherstone, who gleefully piles insults atop injuries to get to the bottom of his patients' marital woes. This Viable Theater Company production employs two different casts (the understudies take their turn on Sundays), but it's difficult to imagine anything topping Truman's Featherstone."" - Chicago Reader

Jayne and Thomas Philpott, a weary married couple, seeks out the recommended counsel of the perpetually foul-mouthed Dr. Featherstone, a therapist who has grown weary of weary people.  As their session progresses, revealed to the audience in real time, Dr. Featherstone utilizes an increasingly offensive and hilarious set of games to peel, or shred, the layers that prevent Jayne and Thomas from coming to terms with each other, as well as themselves.  The end result is violent comedy at its best.

"Featherstone" is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" meets "The Ref" meets "House" meets "Sherlock" meets "Veep" meets "Kramer v Kramer" meets your face.

THE VIABLE THEATER COMPANY ("The Observatory", "Venus Envy", "Killing Angela", Suspicious Clowns, "Ivan's Revenge", "Razor Spirits") is proud to present this world premiere of Chicago playwright Vincent Truman's latest dark comedy / drama / tragedy in HD.

Main cast: Dr. Featherstone (Vincent Truman), Jayne Krazen (Adrienne Gunn), Thomas Philpott (Steve Ruppel), Malcolm Featherstone (Phil DeVone).

Understudy cast: Dr. Featherstone (Catherine Dvorak), Jayne Krazen (Carolyn Reynolds), Thomas Philpott (Brendan Blaine), Malcolm Featherstone (Kevin Patterson).
