By Stephen Guy-McGrath & Steven Mayoff
The critically-acclaimed play Bully by Stephen Guy-McGrath and Steven Mayoff is a heart-breaking, tragically comic tale of science and the dark side of human nature. It is the story of Eugene-Michael Carter II, a boy who has become unglued by one traumatic event in his life. After an encounter with his personal bully, Carter is left to put the pieces of a fragmented world back together. In a desperate attempt to decipher truth from fantasy and theory, he draws on the help of an imaginary friend, and builds a universe made of scientific ponderings, the theories of Stephen Hawking and his own dreams of flight.
The script has inspired multiple viscerally staged productions with awe-inspiring theatricality and emotional verite.
BULLY is a “major dramatic achievement!”, a “sophisticated”, ”innovative” and “powerful story”. If Carl Sagan and Cirque du Soleil got together, BULLY would be their love child!
