The World Stage Premiere
in the W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre
Written and Performed By Tracy Thorne
Directed by Nicholas A. Cotz
November 9, 2022 – December 18, 2022
“Tracy Thorne is a terrific actress. She holds her internal focus and our attention…Director Nicholas A. Cotz does a marvelous job” – Woman Around Town
“How could you just sit there?”
For 10 years, that’s what they’ve asked Jack’s wife.
Well, now she’s talking.
Tracy Thorne stars in a brand new solo play about personal complicity in power structures intended to keep us silent. In this intimate, 70-minute monologue, a privileged woman defends and explores her role in her husband’s illicit behavior.
Jack Was Kind gives an imagined, painfully human backstory to an actual American event that will affect the country for generations to come. This intimate confessional story examines long-seated issues of privilege and complicity at the core of America, as well as our current and explosive political moment.
Irish Rep is proud to present the world premiere (in-person) of Jack Was Kind. Tracy Thorne’s one-woman show premiered on Zoom in October 2020 at All For One Theater, directed by Nicholas Cotz, and produced in association with Jami Floyd.
