How rad is it that humane education goddess Zoe Weil, of the Institute for Humane Education — whom we interviewed for our podcast back on Episode 30 — is about to bring a one-woman show, centering around living compassionately, to the Big Apple? Entitled “My Ongoing Problems With Kindness: Confessions of a MOGO Girl,” the play will debut in NYC on October 13 as part of the world’s largest solo theatre festival. (Get your tickets!) Go Zoe!
Here is how the play is described:
Being kind all the time is hard, even when you’re a humane educator. In her 1-woman show, My Ongoing Problems with Kindness: Confessions of MOGO Girl, IHE president Zoe Weil shares her true confessions, in an entertaining format, about the challenges of living according to the MOGO principle to do the most good and the least harm to all.
We last squawked about the power of the stage in bringing forth the message of animal rights a few weeks ago when we interviewed actress Katya Lidsky (Episode 137) regarding her one-woman show, “I’m Sorry: How An Apologist Became An Activist,” which just finished a wildly successful run at NYC’s renowned Fringe Festival. Katya even dedicated an entire performance to Our Hen House, making us hens chirp with glee. As someone with a lifelong background in theatre, I am passionately behind using theatre to create change for animals. That’s why I am so excited that the amazing Zoe Weil, already an educator, an administrator, an author, and a renowned speaker, is adding performer to her list of impressive achievements.
