Casting Call for New Play Festival at The New School for Drama
KANE (late-20s, black male)-- Janelle's boyfriend, a self-proclaimed man's man with a poet's soul. He is an alum of Prairie View A&M working as non-profit consultant in Houston, Texas. Kane possesses a heightened degree of self-reflection and sensitivity and loves Stephen Curry and Bobby Shmurda.
Here's a description of the play:
When Janelle relocates to Texas for the opportunity of a lifetime, she and her partner, Kane, are reminded that the consequences of being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be horrific. For three Waller County police officers, how might those same consequences manifest themselves along racialized and gendered lines? graveyard shift, loosely inspired by the legacy of Sandra Bland, is a love story about collision; opposing ideologies, interests, truth, and how the characters in this play make sense of them. Or don't.
