EZ and his gang of bullies have created a fake social media account to inflict torment and misery on their fellow students. The account’s name, “April Aardvark”, echoes through the halls with fear and confusion. The gang is smugly satisfied with the results, until the day a student shows up to class claiming to be April Aardvark. She is the living, breathing manifestation of the account – a mean, obscene insult machine. She spreads chaos through the school, turning student against student and bully against bully. But is she really who she claims to be? And if so, how can she be stopped?
Only one thing is certain – she is the greatest bully that ever lived.
The ATYP Foundation Commissions invest in work for young people to perform. Developed by ATYP and published by Playlab, we are creating a canon of work for young actors aged between 10 and 13. This is your chance to see this exciting new Australian work before it goes on to be performed by schools and youth theatres around the country.
