“It’s Easy!” takes place at Goodwin Middle School where bullies make life miserable, bystanders “look the other way” and victims are many. 6th grader, Jed Travis, just wants to find the courage to speak up. And Stacey Emerson, just wants to know why her best friend dumped her for the girls that she hates. And Ricky Palmer? He just wants to disappear. Just as the day couldn’t get any worse, a kind custodian with a time travel app helps Jed. Together, with one unwitting cyber-bully, they see that their futures, and the lives of others, depend on what they say or do, at every moment… is it too late to change the heartbreaking fate of one bullied classmate? Not if it’s up to Jed! The future is always changing.

Before "IT'S EASY!", there was "The Bully & The Bystanders" introduced in 2013 as part of our See The Wish DRAMATERIALS line of classroom plays that teach! This play with music, a popular choice among teachers, was the impetus for the full-length "It's Easy!" and comes with 3 songs including "Speak Up, Reach Out" which was made into a song video under the direction of amazing summer interns, Ben Weiss and Megan Litt!
2015 KickStarter Campaign video features young actors from the orginal cast, Co-Producer Jennifer Young and Director January Akselrad raising awareness about bullying, as well as funds to record a cast album.
