(For production by Professional, College/University, Community, Church, or High School group performing for young people)
Different does not have to mean weird or bad. In a great many cases, “Different=Amazing.”
The subject matter of this new play is drawn from real-life bullying experiences of elementary students, including current Salt Lake and Davis County students in Utah. The goal is to provide students with the tools to identify, address, cope and hopefully prevent bullying in their own schools, neighborhoods and lives. Each short piece shows a different dimension of bullying to help students understand the painful effects of bullying and the role they can play in addressing bullying behavior. Inspired by the 2010 event of the same name. The original production featured Tyson Baker and Latoya Rhodes, and was directed by Jerry Rapier, Plan-B’s Artistic Director.
