Review: Bully – written and performed by Richard Fry

Bully is one of those rare and delicate theatre experiences you wish you could wrap up and take home with you knowing, all along, that to try would only dilute that flush of pleasure, sour the sweetness of such a delicately composed script delivered with such composure and truth.

Bully is a touching and heartfelt drama of a boy whose whole life seems touched by domestic violence. Yet, it is told in a beautifully inventive rhyming verse, that with it’s allure protects the audience from the horrors within. Richard Fry has created one of those rare theatrical marvels that both intellectually stirs and emotionally touches.

Bully is highly recommended for theatre boffins, language lovers, and all parents alike.

Performance was watched on Thursday 4th March.

This particular production comes to us from the UK and is playing at Higher Ground Theatre as a part of the Adelaide Fringe 2010.
