Note: Actors must be available for runs in BOTH cities
JAY: Male, late 20s-early 30s. African American. Solid/tall/powerful physique of a champion heavyweight boxer. An athlete through-and-through, but one who operates with the swagger of an artist. Knows he’s the best out there. A loveable bravado. Stubborn. Kind. Charismatic. Strong. Willing to go up against any odds.
WYNTON: Male, 50s. JAY’s trainer. African American. Knowledgeable. There isn't much he hasn’t seen. Can switch between multiple worlds with ease and fluidity. Paternal. A former athlete himself, but one born to another era.
NINA: Female, 30s. African American. JAY'??s fierce older sister, strong willed and smart. Has a deep soft spot for her family. While deeply caring her fierce sense of what’s best can come off as stern and intimidating, but it’s mostly a veneer.
FISH: Male, 18. African American. An amateur boxer, who becomes JAY’s sparring partner. An athlete, with a ambitious, a youthful energy and an inherent if unassuming sweetness. Must work very hard to get where he feels he deserves to go, but willing to make the effort.
MAX: Male, 40s. Caucasian. A fight promoter and referee. Feels the need to demonstrate his power, but is easily intimidated. He likes making money, but more importantly, he likes the sport of it all. He pushes for the fight to happen, not because it will bring glory to him but because it will be important, even historical.

BILLY: Male, 20s. Born deaf, brought up Oral. Wears hearing aids. He meets SYLVIA who teaches him to sign, opening him up to a world he never knew before. Sheltered, considerate, a gentle spirit. PART ALREADY CAST, AUDITIONS FOR REPLACEMENT AND UNDERSTUDIES ONLY.
CHRISTOPHER: Male, 50s-60s. BILLY’s father. Husband of BETH. father of BILLY, RUTH, and DANIEL. He would probably like to think of himself as liberal or at the very least “open-minded”, but in reality things are very black and white to him. He’s a writer and an academic. He loves his children, but wants all of them to be things they aren’t. PART ALREADY CAST, AUDITIONS FOR REPLACEMENT AND UNDERSTUDIES ONLY.
BETH: Female, 50s-60s. Wife of CHRISTOPHER, mother of BILLY, RUTH, and DANIEL. She is sensitive and empathetic to the complexities of her children’s lives, but oblivious to the real issues. Enjoys having adult children whom she can relate to, but she could have possibly always treated them as adults. She is attempting to redefine herself as a mystery writer. PART ALREADY CAST, AUDITIONS FOR REPLACEMENT AND UNDERSTUDIES ONLY.
RUTH: Female, 20s. The middle child. A year or two older than BILLY. Like the rest of her family she is struggling with self-identity. Typical middle child. Self-aware; perhaps the most self-aware of the entire family (in a way only a 20-something can be). At present she thinks of herself as an opera singer.
DANIEL: Male, 20s. The oldest child. A year or two older than RUTH. A pothead, emotional, uncomfortable with change. He has always defined himself in reference to being BILLY’s big brother. Once BILLY starts to find himself
DANIEL is unable to cope with the loss and his depression and childhood stutter return. PART ALREADY CAST, AUDITIONS FOR REPLACEMENT AND UNDERSTUDIES ONLY.
SYLVIA: Female, 20s. Born with hearing but now rapidly going deaf. While she hasn’t wanted to let someone in, she falls for BILLY. While BILLY might see her as a vibrant new light in his life the rest of the family sees her as “nice and funny.” Experience with ASL and the piano a plus.
