BULLY VIRUS by Kate Herbert 16 to 27 May, 2018

 Australia! Gold Medal Winner in Workplace Bullying!

BOOK NOW: or 03 9347 6142
Jenny Lovell  & Carole Patullo

Workplace bullying is the new virus and Australia is really good at it! We have one of the highest rates in the world!  Are we proud?

Bully Virus is satirical, moving Verbatim Theatre with actors telling real people’s stories about workplace bullying. Many victims escape to new jobs, most take no action against bullies, some seek compensation. However, bullying claims are frequently denied which compounds the victim’s indignity and anxiety.

Bully Virus does not try to tell everyone’s story or even the worst stories, but it shows that, despite myriad anti-bullying initiatives, workplace bullying is alive and well – and hurting workers.

Bully Virus is directed and written by Kate Herbert and performed by Jenny Lovell, Carole Patullo, Geoff Wallis and Anna Durham (music). The play is developed from interviews with real victims of bullying.

Kate Herbert is a Melbourne-based playwright, director, theatre reviewer, performer and lecturer in performing arts and writing.
