Bullying behavior is something that schools, families, communities and young people are grappling with every day. From the company that brought you the ground-breaking Are We There Yet?, The Bully Project is a brand new interactive play for Junior Highs that explores the complex reasons why bullying behavior happens, and what young people and the adults and communities who care about them can do about it. Audience participation is key to this engaging project, that defines bullying, takes audiences through character based scenes and improvised endings to explore the complexities around the issue, helps students find safe and constructive ways to combat this behavior, and helps educators set school boundaries and policies.
