Production Description

Casting "The Hand That Was Dealt," a play. Synopsis: After moving into their Bushwick apartment, college sweethearts Kathy and Isaiah look to find themselves while dealing with the pressures of life.


Kathy (Lead): Female, 18-30

23. A Dominican American who recently moved in with her college sweetheart, Isaiah. She is a hospital administrator by day and is getting her master's degree in public health by night.

Linda (Supporting): Female, 30-50
a 40-year-old Dominican hairdresser and mother of two. She has a 22-year-old daughter, Kathy, who's very successful, and a 17-year-old son named Justin who's always in some type of trouble. Linda was raised in a family that believed the woman is to be taken care of by the man. Being abandoned by her family for being pregnant at a young age has left Linda always looking for love and support in the wrong places, which has resulted in two failed marriages (the fathers of her kids). She is currently in a relationship with an abusive, unemployed man named Patrick, who is constantly fighting her son, Justin.

Justin (Supporting): Male, 18-25
17. An ambitious aspiring rapper who wants to make it by any means necessary. Growing up in a dysfunctional poverty-stricken family, he has always aspired for more, but in the wrong places. Gaining traction on YouTube for a couple songs he recorded, he started credit card scamming to sponsor his career. After an attempt to scam a department store, Justin was arrested. Since his mom doesn't have the money, she borrowed it from his older sister Kathy, 23, who just moved in with her boyfriend, Isaiah. Due to the fact that Justin has a great relationship with Isaiah, Justin's mom asked Kathy if he could stay with her for a while so she could get a break.
