The beautiful and uplifting Love and Kindness in the Time of Quarantine offers hope, encouragement and perspective in a time of uncertainty. Through a blend of three songs and six monologues, this heartfelt and compassionate new work, led by The Rep’s Andrew W. Mellon playwright-in-residence Regina Taylor, reflects on the search for light in the darkness. Featuring nationally renowned writers Octavio Solis, Connie Congdon, Dustin Chinn and Isaac Gomez, as well as local favorites Tonina, Carter Lewis, Mariah Richardson and Tre’von Griffith.

Inspired by the community organizations that demonstrate love and kindness in the St. Louis region every day, The Rep has partnered with the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis on this virtual production. Donations are encouraged and all proceeds directly benefit the Urban League as they provide food, toiletries and housing assistance to community members in need this holiday season.
