Bully

BULLY Logo.jpg

As a part of the New York International Fringe Festival, Lee J. Kaplan will bring his powerful solo show Bully to the Steve & Marie Sgouros Theatre (115 MacDougal Street, formerly the Players Theatre Loft). Inspired by entries in Lee’s sixth-grade journal, in the multi-character play he returns to the scene of the crime for the fight of his life, calling to the ring those who subjected him to unrelenting bullying attacks.

An emotional journey about finding the strength and the will to confront bullies from the past and from present-day, Lee J. Kaplan’s moving and insightful show offers a glimpse into what it was like to endure bullying as a child, also shedding light on how carrying it into adulthood can have long-term effects on an individual. From his fellow students to teachers, coaches, his family and more, Kaplan explores the many moments and people who affected his life to create a moving story about growing up and dealing with the demons of the past.

Performances will be on Saturday, 8/10 at 7:30pm, Sunday, 8/11 at 6pm, Wednesday, 8/14 at 6pm (followed by a FringeHIGH talkback), Friday, 8/16 at 2:30pm, Sunday, 8/18 at 1:45pm, and Wednesday, 8/21 at 9:15pm.
