Everyone strives to be kind but for most of us it’s not in our job description. Zoe Weil is a humane educator, author, and professional nice person. The president of the Institute for Humane Education in Surry, ME, Zoe has branched out into theater, writing and performing her new one-woman show,“My Ongoing Problems with Kindness: Confessions of MOGO Girl.”

Zoe will be performing her one-woman show at the Stonington Opera House on Friday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. before taking it to Times Square in New York City for opening weekend of the United Solo Theatre Festival, the largest solo theater festival in the U.S., Saturday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m.

The show explores important global issues in an entertaining format using personal stories about Zoe’s life and challenges living according to the MOGO (most good) principle to do the most good and the least harm to herself, other people, animals and the environment.

“With healthy doses of wit, candor and insight, Zoe Weil shows us just how tricky — and funny — it can be attempting to live as a full-time compassionate citizen on this wonderful, complicated planet,” said Kurt Schmidt, organizer of the international debut in Fredericton, NB, last spring. “If you like laughter, deep thought, and hearty challenges, then you don’t want to miss ‘My Ongoing Problems with Kindness.’ Long live MOGO Girl and her growing band of solutionaries!”

In addition to co-founding the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) and its unique online graduate programs, Zoe is the author of several books, including Nautilus Silver Medal winner Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life. She has written numerous articles on humane education and humane living, speaks frequently and leads workshops across the U.S. and Canada as well as overseas, and was the recent subject of a widely read interview in Forbes magazine. She has also given acclaimed TEDx talks, “The World Becomes What You Teach” and “Solutionaries.” In 2012 Zoe was honored with the award for Women in Environmental Leadership from Unity College.
