What do a young child and a head of state have in common? Do presidents ever have temper tantrums in supermarkets? Or howl with rage until they get what they want?

This piece playfully envisages a clash between two global powers (a small child v. a head of state) and how they eventually learn to meet in the middle – politics among children and childish pranks among adults. “BullyBully” is a children’s musical à la West Side Story, with two performers in elaborate costumes, lots of songs, funny fighting, and, finally, a happy end. Power was never so childish. Children were never so powerful.
