Bully issues is a dark little comedy suitable for middle and High schools.
In the play, three bullies clash over their varied approaches to bullying (physical, psychological and social) and with their own inner struggles to come to terms with what they do, why they do it, and who they are. It's dark, funny, and ultimately a new way of looking at bullying from the other side - and hopefully with a positive outcome, and a message that isn't preachy. It's what I wish someone had told me when I was getting picked on by bigger kids when I was growing up.
