True Drama
Brad Lewis

Brad studied at LiatBein in Tel Aviv, Israel, before studying in New York at HB Studio and Lee Strasberg. He played a Greenwich Police Detectivein a scene next to the Chief of Police and he also got the play the God of Drama on stage during scene blocking. Brad Explains, “I really enjoyed playing Dionysos – it’s just a different world behind that mask – you feel bigger than life. It’s a different kind of acting. The slightest head move changes the shadows on the mask and creates expressiveness. And the way the other performers react to you is just incredible.”

About True Drama
Strange Bacchic disturbances in the woods protesting a local horror movie prompt a police investigation. A shadowy figure emerges. Calling himself the God of Drama, he believes that he can achieve the seemingly impossible goal of returning drama to its original purpose – of preparing citizens for leadership in democracy. As the horror movie spirals out of control, and the Bacchae are consumed in violence - can officer Ailish Walsh discern the truth before a gruesome Greek drama unfolds?

Director James Thomas creates a Greek tragedy for our time. A horror story that looks at the original role of drama – as the companion invention of democracy – to shed light on how modern media is still working in our lives, in hidden ways, to rip us apart. True Drama is an alarm – a rare moment of clarity – a terrifying jolt - and an invitation to enjoy the true transcendental power of drama to help us envision a better Democracy.
