“Mr Buckley rang me. Said there was a hassle at the excursion. Said you were to blame. You want to give me your side of the story? Is someone hassling you…someone in your class? If someone is giving you a hard time … then be smart … pick your time and place … use your head … and fight back. OK?”

When Ray takes his dad’s advice and stands up to the school bullies, his life will be changed forever.

An award-winning production, The Apology is a powerful study of teenage violence and the effects of long-term bullying.
