The Bully Plays


The Bully Plays

The Bully Plays is an anthology written in response to the growing epidemic of bullying and the all-too-often tragic results. The journey is tragic, comedic, dramatic and always thought-provoking as we explore the subject of bullies and bullying.

Director: Jeanné Callinan is excited to engage in her directorial debut with Theatre @ First. She was inspired by her son's own experiences and feels passionately about participating in the international conversations on bullying.

Special Partner: Theatre@First will be sharing our proceeds with Teen Empowerment for both performances of The Bully Plays.



The Somerville Theatre, Davis Square, Somerville, MA
