I'm Being Bullied
A Play About Bullies
Setting: at school
Characters: The Bully = Bob, Cindy = The Bullied, A Teacher, N=Narrator, Cindy's Friend Rosemary
Teacher: Time for recess!!!
Cindy: Oh no!
N: Reluctantly Cindy walked to the door to go outside
to meet her worst nightmare again...
Rosemary: I don't know Cindy, I don't see him. I have
to stay inside because I forgot to write that paragraph though. I'll see
N: Cindy began to feel scared and alone. Slowly she
walked through the doors to the playground. She sat down on a swing. Suddenly,
she heard a booming voice behind her.
Bob: Hi there, want to play?
N: Then, she felt a hard push on her back sending her
flying to the ground. She got up and ran.
Bob: I wasn't done playing with you! I see! You want
to play tag!
N: Bob could run faster than Cindy and soon caught
up to her. He pushed her to the ground and she cried out in pain. Bob stepped
on her back and the teacher came running over.
Teacher: What's going on!
Bob: Nothing! We were just playing tag and she fell
over and I ran over to help her up!
Teacher: Is that true Cindy?
N: Cindy could sense Bob's anger so reluctantly she
Cindy: Yes, but my leg hurts really bad, may
I go to the office please?
Teacher: Of course!
N: Cindy was full of joy, she finally got to get away
Teacher: Bob, will you please go with her?
N: A smile slid across Bob's face and a shiver went
down Cindy's spine. When the teacher had left Bob pulled up Cindy and said...
Bob: Let's go to the office for your boo boo!
N: Cindy was afraid and didn't know what to do.
Cindy: You better be nice or I'm telling!
Bob: I'm so afraid! Help me from this little tattletale!
N: Slowly, they walked up to the office where they
got ice and sat until the bell rang. Cindy didn't understand why teachers
didn't see him bullying! She was only one of the many people he enjoyed
picking on, though she was the main target. So, the next day, she thought
of a plan.
Cindy: Rosemary! I have a plan! I talked to my mom about
bullying and she gave me a three step solution. First, I give Bob the look.
It's like a harsh look that tells him to stop. Then, if that doesn't work
or the next time he bullies me I ask him to please stop while giving the look.
After that, I tell a teacher that I gave him the look, asked him to stop
and that it didn't help. Then, they will know I tried to stop the bullying
Rosemary: That sounds like it just might work! Do you
really think he'll bully you three times today though?
Cindy: Wouldn't be the first time!
N: The bell rang for recess and Cindy walked out the
doors with Rosemary confidently.
Bob: Hi twerps!
N: As Bob spoke, he pushed Cindy to the ground. Cindy
looked at him from the ground with a hard look that would send anyone running.
Bob: Please! Help! Cindy is mad and looking at me! OH
Cindy: Bob, please stop!
Bob: What nice manners! Please, that's just lovely!
N: Bob helped Cindy up from the ground only to throw
her back down again.
Rosemary: Are you going to tell the teacher?
Cindy: Yea, lets go.
Teacher: Yes Cindy, what's wrong?
Cindy: Well, Bob has been bullying me. He pushed me down
and I gave him the look. Then, I told him to please, stop when he started
picking on me. Can you help?
Teacher: Of course! I'm glad you tried to solve the problem
before you came to me. Come on.
Rosemary: We won't be seeing him too much anymore!
Cindy: I sure hope so!
N: So, the teacher talked to Bob and he confessed to
bullying everyone. Cindy and Rosemary weren't worried about getting picked
on by Bob so they had more fun at recess. As for Bob, he couldn't go out
for recess the rest of the year unless the teachers were keeping a special
eye on him. Remember, if you ever have a problem such as Cindy's, just follow
the three steps, the look, please stop, and tell a teacher.
