Tessa, Damon, and Keegan share the same band class and the same passion: their pets. When Tessa loses her beloved dog Joey, the event challenges and transforms not only the three children, but the adults in their lives as well.

Heartwarming and humorous, Kindness sensitively captures the reality of children's feelings as they navigate the small and large events in their world. From Hurricane Katrina to everyday encounters in the school hallway, the play offers an unforgettable lesson in compassion.


"Foon's three preteen protagonists grapple with terrible loss, death, bullying, pathological lying, and distressing global events… learn[ing] that with empathy they can change their world. " —Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press
