SOUTH OTSELIC – Members of the audience may be surprised by this year’s Otselic Valley Central School District fall production of “The Bully Plays,” according to director Michael Foor-Pessin. From the ground up, the selection of short comedies and tragedies is unique in its portrayal of bullies, bullying and the victims involved.
Compiled and edited by Linda Habjan, and produced by special agreement with Woodstock, Illinois-based Dramatic Publishing Company, “The Bully Plays” consists of 24, 10-minute segments that touch on issues such as inappropriate text messaging and online photography, bullying, suicide and others facing today’s youth, said Foor-Pessin.
“This is a different direction, a totally new development, and I want the audience to have a very different experience,” added the director. “I want them to leave here thinking about bullying ... about what we’re going to do about it.”
