Funny Women Award winner Thanyia Moore has been a bully, and she’s been bullied. What does that make her: villain, victim, both? This is a candid, hilarious show about being a “nightmare” child - and overcoming it.
Born in the 1980s in South London to working-class Jamaican parents, Thanyia first experienced bullying just after her birth - when her Dad put too many letters in her name. She went on to have too much energy and anger - a bad thing in Jamaican culture, where “children should be seen and not heard”. And a terrible thing if you answer to Thanyia’s Mum Joyce, a no-nonsense figure, feared even by local muggers.
Bully is about a self-proclaimed “horrible child”, who grew through the 90s into a bully and a bullied person - to a background of Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn and Stephen Lawrence’s murder. It’s about Thanyia suddenly being the only black girl in a posh Kent school. It’s about acting up to the label “drama queen” when you can’t express yourself. And it’s about whether you can change your ways, before karma craps on your (90s highlighted) head.
Showcasing Thanyia’s engaging storytelling stand-up, Bully is relatable, relevant, thoughtful and funny. It’s directed by Alex Hardy, Funny Women Writing Award winner, who directed Joz Norris’s award-winning 2019 Fringe show.
