Breaking the Silence of Bullying is a play for educators and community leaders written to ignite a discussion about bullying. Each of its three acts illustrates examples of bullying endured by Cheryl, a middle school student struggling with the loss of her mother at home and the cruelty of one particular boy, Wallace, at school. Wallaces sidekick is Vernon, who serves as a cheerleader for Wallaces intimidating behaviors. Finally, the play gives us a look at the tragic home life of Wallace, who bears the brunt of his fathers pain and anger due to the mothers abandonment of the family. Confused and abused, Wallace and Cheryl both make a reckless decision in an attempt to resolve their silent heartbreak.
