A group of strangers forever bound by tragedy sit down for an imagined meal that evolves into a crime scene, a search for answers, and eventually a requiem. The irreconcilable perceptions and raw memories of a troubled young man, his mother, and the survivors of a series of shootings are woven together in a drama that avoids easy answers about living in a violent world. A thought-provoking illustration of renewal and forgiveness, Bully Dance heralds the return of Huntington Playwriting Fellow David Valdes Greenwood to Argos Productions.
