WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In response to the riots of August 2011, Bernadette Russell committed to be kind to a stranger every single day for a year. This multi media show tells the heartbreaking, surprising and challenging stories of that year, which began with burning buildings and ended with the flame of the Olympic torch, against a global backdrop of social unrest and economic crisis. Part storytelling, part stand up, part live documentary, featuring a dinner party with surprise guests including the Dalai Lama, Aristotle and Princess Diana, this show attempts to answer the question: is it possible to change the world just by being kind?
