I have been a big supporter of the St. Lou Fringe festival since its inception three years ago. This year I was out of town for most of the festival’s run (June 18-22), so I only got to six events. Rather than writing a review of each one, I have decided put them into three groups: hits, misses, and flops (a.k.a. “I want my 45 minutes back”). We’ll start with the hits.
Bullying could be considered a kind of “violent delight” (Shakespeare’s words, though that wasn’t his subject) to those who practice it, but they are a cowardly breed. Cyberbullying is a great temptation to young people who have all manner of Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, etc. ways to connect with each other that can allow them, if they choose, to taunt others anonymously.
