WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

An ailing mother and her teenaged son flee Illinois and a crumbling marriage for the relative calm and safety of a midtown Manhattan hotel. Mom holds tickets to a popular musical about love and redemption. Her son, a gifted student currently enrolled at a prestigious military academy, isn't interested. So Mom takes the kindly cabdriver instead, while the boy entertains a visitor from down the hall, an enigmatic young woman seeking solace after a tumultuous, potentially dangerous evening. Adam Rapp's Kindness is a play about the preciousness of life, the possibility for sympathy in a harsh world, and the meaning of mercy in the face of devastating circumstances.
