Impending Everyone by Michael Andrew Collins

"This cannot be stopped; your history is impending. Everyone will know tomorrow, by the end of lunch, who you really are..."

Bathory Begins by Emme Hoy and Gretel Vella

Girls vs. boys. Public vs. private... And an undead woman of the night. Things were never going to end well.

Compass by Jessica Bellamy

If we are barely managing to take care of ourselves, how do we treat an outsider? Is our moral compass set in stone, or can we get lost?

Description

Nathaniel Moncrieff’s April Aardvark was the winner of the ATYP Foundation Commission (cast aged 10-13 years) in 2018.

SYNOPSIS

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.
