Jack Was Kind

Consulting Producer

AFO Theater


Originally produced by All For One Theater in association with Jami Floyd for virtual audiences, Jack Was Kind is a one-woman show written and performed by Tracy Thorne and directed by Nick Cotz, with its world Stage Premiere at the Irish Repertory in November 2022.

The show imagines the internal life of a woman married to a prominent judge as he reaches for the role of a lifetime–the US Supreme Court. Painfully human and based on a real-life American event that will affect the country for generations to come, this intimate confessional story examines deep-seeded issues of privilege and complicity at the root of American sexual politics. Just before opening, AFO was shuttered for COVID and pivoted to zoom performances in Spring 2020, adding a series of conversations integral to the virtual performance. Jami produced these conversations, moderating several, together with AFO's Josh Adam Ramos for a theatrical experience that gave remote audiences an emotional punch, but also an artistic release.
