On today’s episode, Matt speaks with writer and performer Tracy Thorne about her new play “Jack Was Kind.” Thanks to All for One Theater, the show is entering its final week of a month-long run before it closes on Oct. 10.
Thorne’s intimate, confessional play examines long-seated issues of privilege and complicity at the core of America, as well as our current explosive political moment. Jack Was Kind gives an imagined and painfully human backstory to an actual American event that will affect the country for an entire generation, at least.
Each performance of the 70-minute play will be followed by a discussion with Thorne and a special guest, arranged in consultation with national affairs commentator Jami Floyd, to spotlight issues of complicity in American power structures.
Jack Was Kind will be presented Wednesdays at 8:00 pm, Thursdays at 3:00 pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm. Tickets ($5-$50) are available at EventBrite.
