What happens when you can’t protect your own kid from the cruelty of her friends? Allison is a single mother who spends a whole school year trying to fight her daughter’s bullies while being haunted by memories of her own experiences growing up. Humorous, thoughtful and honest, Out of Bounds weaves together video, comic books, and interviews to tell the stories of kids stuck on the outside and the adults who feel powerless to help them. This production comes with extensive outreach programs for schools and communities. “Crisp, powerful and crushingly real.” The Gazette
