Bullies: Monologues on Bullying for Teens and Adults

Apr 20, 2018 02:00AM
“Your heart’s pounding, you sweat, and you feel like you’re going to vomit…” Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is far from the only celebrity to overcome bullying to attain huge success. If bullying is a problem for many in high school, it is even more of a problem for those who are different – which often means those who are particularly gifted in some way. What a bully makes a curse may later turn to be a great gift. But too many young people give up before that can happen, turning to substance abuse or even suicide. This collection of monologues looks at this national problem from the point of view of the victims and the bullies. These monologues bring a powerful message for both adults and teens. Rated PG13.
