A Michigan play receives national publicity
A Michigan play about bullied teenagers who commit suicide has received national publicity. The Bullycide Project is a play written by Fenton High School teacher Lori Thompson. It was featured on the CBS news program 48 Hours last Friday.
Thompson says as a theater teacher, the stage is the most effective vehicle for creating social awareness.
When we hear about Tyler Clementi, the young man from Rutgers, or Phoebe Prince, the young lady from Ireland that came here and lived in Boston; I mean these are all national stories, and then there are all the stories that happen locally.
The Bullycide Project will be performed at the Flint Youth Theatre on September 24th.
