Art As A Cultural Necessity


Bully Me Down is an interweaving play combining the stories of three characters who are both victims of bullying and bullies themselves. One story thread follows real life privateer, Captain William Kidd who was framed and hanged as a pirate even though he had legal recourse to capture enemy ships. A second imagines what lies ahead for Edward Snowman, a former NSA employee who has leaked secret documents and is being pursued by the vigilante President of the United States, Breck O'Banana. The third story line centers around teenage Bobby Culliford who, in order to deal with the grief of his dying mother, ends up bullying his best friend into dire consequences. In the end, the three characters are untied via interviews with Barbra Walters, portrayed as an actor manipulated puppet.  

Letter Of Marquee (LOM) is an ensemble theater company run like a pirate ship, sailed to challenge the status quo of apathy and set on making theater accessible to every generation.
