Description That Kindness: Nurses in their Own Words is a new virtual play created by American nurses with writer, activist, and performance artist V (formerly known as Eve Ensler), honoring nurses’ selfless act of service and revealing raw, passionate testimonies from the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. BAM presents the world premiere at www.bam.org/that-kindness on October 15th at 7pm (EST) simultaneously with theaters across the country and will remain publicly posted for 96 hours. Viewers are encouraged to support those who risk their lives daily to care for their patients during the pandemic by donating to The Brooklyn Hospital Center Covid-19 Fund. In this most important of election years and further channeling That Kindness into a call to action, this production is presented in conjunction with BAM's Get Out the Vote effort. That Kindness draws from frank, stirring interviews and personal stories that coalesce into a compelling narrative of kindness, confession, and activism tailored to our times. The cast includes Ed Blunt, Connie Britton, Rosario Dawson, Stephanie Hsu, LaChanze, Liz Mikel, Rosie O'Donnell, Billy Porter, Dale Soules, Marisa Tomei, and Monique Wilson. The production features original music by Morley.
