Written by playwright Janice McCrostie, this is a new docudrama based on real life experiences of real people who have been bullied.
A year and a half ago the media brought to our attention the epidemic of suicides by young people that has been plaguing our country. I was outraged and heartbroken that these teenagers felt so hopeless in their surroundings that they saw no other way out than to take their own life. From that moment, I knew I wanted to find a way to use my art to contribute to a solution. My concept is simple: produce a play that will open people’s eyes to the very real dangers of bullying not just of homosexuals, but for all the world’s “misfits”. The people who do not fit in the basic mold that society- especially teenagers create to ensure their own self worth. My friend and playwright Janice McCrostie has proposed writing an original piece that will lend a voice to the unheard. The play entitled “ How Would You Feel?” is a compilation of interviews between the playwright and various people from all walks of life that have experienced some sort of bullying. The idea of the finished project is to bring hope, awareness and healing. The play would include 3-5 actors with a minimalistic background to keep the audience’s attention on the stories. A chair perhaps, or some cubes with a neutral background would be all that is required. Under my direction, I would like to include if available a collaboration of community and current university students for the actual production. Both Technicians as well as actors are needed. A few lights to go up at the beginning and down at the end is all that we are looking for. Sound Equipment will be supplied by Cobra Sound from Berwick $100 x 4. Venue will be The Moose Exchange in Bloomsburg for $150 x 4. Lights are being donated, so that leaves $100 for lumber and/or programs. I would like to emphasize that Theatre For The World (or any of us working on the project) will not be receiving any proceeds.
