What would you do if everyone hated you?

Rather than run or fight, teenager Donald decides to use the power of comedy!

Donald's a 'scrawny wee guy' who's desperate to find a way to beat the school bullies and thinks that laughter might be the answer. With the help of his mentor Gary, they devise a cunning plan to help combat the bullying and make Donald king of the playground!

 Previously a hot ticket at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this is a funny, classic coming-of-age story.
