Bully! is an Epic Theatre genre play which consists of vignettes of short scenes, monologues and duologues which revolve around the issue of bullying; themes include school yard bullying, cyber bullying, racism, exclusion, peer group pressure, frenemies, bystanders.
Designed to be performed and watched in a high school context, Bully! is designed for large casts with each actor playing multiple roles with the option of scenes being omitted and students also writing their own to integrate into the text and create their own unique production. The inclusion of musical numbers, physical theatre and dance pieces is also encouraged. Every scene is based on real life accounts and events; some funny, some challenging, some heartbreaking, but all real.
