Actorapists: A new Series for the Web!
The master of mantras James Hart (Kyle McDonald) runs a psychodrama studio – psychodrama being a method of group psychotherapy in which participants take roles in improvisational dramatizations of emotionally charged situations. James, with his troupe of actors – comprised of the self-absorbed Lindsay (Kristina Pesic), the day-dreamer Bodhi (Shawn Ahmed), the cynical Brennan (Brendan Jeffers), and the sane Kirsten (Katie Odegaard) – helps patients – or “protagonists” – to work through their difficulties – or “traumatic ordeals.”
The only trouble is...they’re terrible at it. Because of this they can’t quite pay the bills, which prompts Kirsten to rent out the troupe to an ad firm run by the oleaginous Brently Targaryen (Darryl Hinds) – the dragon master – who insists that James sells out by doing a commercial for a dating site.
James Hart needs to make a tough decision: does he stay true to his principals and perhaps let his company founder, or does he seek the counsel of his sensei (Scott Thompson), confront an old fear, and save the day?
