Viable: The Truth in One Act

WASHINGTON, D.C.— National Right to Life is bringing Viable: The Truth in One Act to its 50th annual convention which runs from June 25th-26th at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport Hotel in Herndon, Virginia. The dinner theater show is the evening of Thursday, June 24th.

Viable explores one woman’s story of frustration and anger but one that will resonate with millions. The one-act play is the moving story of a mother who carries a burden—all because of a choice she made 30 years before.

“We are thrilled to bring the live dinner theater production of Viable to our 50th annual convention,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Viable begins with a mystery, explores every human emotion, and ends in a beautiful story of forgiveness and redemption.”

Viable was written by Dr. John Hoover, a former writer of live shows for the Disneyland Entertainment Division and a New York Times bestselling author. Dr. Hoover was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write this play to meet a special need for times such as these.

Tobias continued, “We thank Dr. Hoover for his work on this sensitive issue as well as the actors who bring to life this moving story. We want this to be a way for women, men, and families to find hope and healing.”
