  Chisa Hutchinson’s “Surely Goodness and Mercy,” at Theater Row, takes its title from Psalms, the section of the Bible that — if we’re to believe the show’s curmudgeonly but kindhearted lunch lady, Bernadette — is where all the good book’s bangers are. And though this morality play has its collection basket full of tokens of charity, it still feels withholding.

  Under Jessi D. Hill’s direction, the 95-minute Keen Company production moves quickly, in a series of gasp-like three- or four-minute scenes. But the plot is fairly bare-bones: Tino (Jay Mazyck), an intelligent 12-year-old boy who lives with his abusive aunt, Alneesa (Sarita Covington), in Newark, befriends Bernadette (Brenda Pressley) and a brassy classmate while doing some extracurricular Bible reading. When Tino resolves to help Bernadette with an illness, she ultimately returns the favor.

  Perhaps that’s giving too much away, but the play’s spare, homiletic approach is upfront from the beginning. What you see is what you get, with church sermons about giving blessings and being granted blessings in return.

  Ms. Hutchinson has been regularly produced in New York, with “Proof of Love,” another play, coming to the Minetta Lane Theater this spring.

  Here, while full of heart, the writing skimps on the meat of the story. Tino lost one parent and may have been abandoned by the other, and he’s also the victim of bullying — all mentioned largely in passing. Alneesa is little more than a sketch of an antagonistic caretaker, a modern-day Miss Hannigan.

  Tino’s classmate, Deja (Courtney Thomas), though introduced with a gruesome story about self-harm, doesn’t get her own arc; she’s just there to give Tino someone to talk to. And Bernadette, too, is mostly a lovable grouse.

  One might assume that a play whose protagonist seeks meaning in the Bible would engage with questions of religion, especially as it relates to grief and pain. But for all its Samaritan-speak, the play’s idea of reciprocity seems uncomplicated, and its characters’ relationship to faith — and each other — feels ill-defined and superficial. (Lee Savage’s blocky set design, with a large cross hanging over the stage, is effective if a bit on the nose.)

  Ms. Hutchinson sprinkles in tidbits about class and race — Alneesa criticizing Tino’s deceased mother for loving white people and hating her own blackness provides a striking shade of nuance to the family dynamic — but the most charged material is quickly sidestepped.

  It’s too bad, for both the characters and the actors who capably portray them. At the very least, our central duo — Mr. Mazyck, endearingly awkward as Tino, and Brenda Pressley, likable though underserved by the one-note Bernadette — should have more to work with.

  The play ends suddenly, with an exchange of blessings and hope for the future. “Surely” asks us to take it on faith that, as the big book puts it, “goodness and mercy shall follow” us if we give a little good first. But inspirational-poster optimism, though pleasant, isn’t quite enough to carry us through.
