Casting non-union actors for OFF THE REALNESS a new play by Nick Gandiello directed by Lucia A. Peters to be produced at the New School for Drama as part of the 2011 New Voices Festival. Addy, a rough white kid from the suburbs, has earned himself a spot in a rap concert with hip-hop star K-Raise. If he can reunite with his estranged brother Ty and reestablish their rap duo together, he has a shot at a record deal. But when Ty starts questioning the violence in Addy’s lyrics, truths about the brothers' past, identities, and hip-hop itself are explosively revealed, and Addy must decide how far he will go to prove that he is Real.

K-RAISE - Black. Late 20s. An up-and-coming rap star who intends to take over the hip-hop industry. Immense in physicality and behavior. Despite his wild bravado, deep wounds have made him discretely compassionate.

GRAY - Black, early 30s. K-Raise’s unofficial bodyguard and confidant. Big guy with jail time in his bones. He rarely sees the need to speak, and is confident and direct enough to secure the space around him with merely a look. Intensely loyal.

KWASI - Black. 18 or 19. Addy’s friend and DJ. A little guy with a big smile. Friendly, eager to please, and perhaps a little naive. He produces hip-hop for his love of the music, and makes no effort to be something he is not.
