Role Description

Bradley: (Lead) the incomplete one-legged bully, Bradley, the second son, another caricature, vicious, incapacitated in his helplessness, abusive toward those whom he can hurt, bullies Tilden, metaphorically rapes Shelly, and attacks his father as he sleeps with the shears, buries Dodge with the coat and cuts his hair, perhaps a Sampson and Delilah allusion, cries weakly for his mother’s help, when others remove his blanket or his leg, and he lies about his interaction with Shelly.
