  1. Burnt: An Australian Anti-Bullying Play (Years 8-10)

    Burnt tells the story of Simon, who is consistently bullied by Richard, one of his schoolmates. Set after the situation has come to a crisis point, the play explores the feelings of three of Simon's friends - could they have prevented it? - with flashbacks to incidents between Simon and Richard, and monologues from Simon about his longing to fit in. By putting themselves in Simon's place, students learn to have empathy for the victims of bullying, to understand that 'it's okay to be different' and to create a strong network among themselves to support one another.
