“You’re a Galápagos tortoise, a beautiful creature that you wouldn’t want to see locked up.”

In a dead-end office job apathy may be essential to survival. Three office workers befriend Evelyn, a woman in her late eighties. Unfulfilled by their jobs, the workers’ boredom manifests in paranoia and violent escapism. Evelyn’s presence allows the office workers to vent their frustrations and to seek guidance from someone who, for once, seems to have the time to listen.

Bridget Mackey’s play is a meditation on the pressures of modern life and the intricacies of relationships between strangers. Kindness asks us to consider if acts of altruism can ever be devoid of cruelty and reflect on our obligation to reach out to those in need.
