On Bullying: Monologues Performance Set For March 13

A series of monologues written by creative writing students from the Central Washington University English Department, called, “On Bullying,” will be performed by CWU Theatre students from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, in McConnell Auditorium.

 The show is directed by Theatre professor Patrick Dizney, acted by students from Dizney's TH245 Basic Acting class, with scripts written by Lisa Norris's ENG 263 Introduction to Creative Writing class.

 The project was inspired in part by the work of Ruth Ozeki, who visited the CWU campus during Winter quarter. In Ozeki's book, A Tale for the Time Being, one of the main characters (Nao) struggles to survive victimization at the hands of her schoolmates in Japan. Bullying is, of course, a problem that crosses age groups and cultures. The monologues give voice to the experience in way that can promote understanding, conversation, and change.

 The event is free and open to the public.
