With 'Mr. Nobody at Point Blank Range,' Tampa rapper takes a turn as playwright

Tampa rapper Chris Nunez (above), a.k.a. Anonymous (or And.On.I.Must), turns his hand to theater with Mr. Nobody at Point Blank Range, a black comedy he wrote and directed at an Ybor City gallery. Here's what he had to say about it in an e-mail:

"Mr. Nobody is a six-person, one-act play about Silo, a 19-year-old with no aspirations, no home life, a dead-end job and a roommate that only complicates matters. The plot centers around a robbery at the Quick E Mart, where he works, during which he is forced to make a sad realization at gunpoint.''

The cast includes Ryan Niven as Silo along with Paige Snyder, Alyssa Delio, Colin Fendrick, Elizabeth Fendrick and Nunez.

Nunez, 18, a Plant High graduate this year, participated in the youth program at the Ojai Playwright's Conference in California over the summer. In June he released his first record, Sincerely, Anonymous, on ZeyeOn:PDG, his own label. After the play is over, he heads off to New York University to study dramatic writing.

Mr. Nobody has performances at 8 tonight and Friday night at the Silver Meteor Gallery, 2213 E Sixth Ave., Tampa. $10, $12. (813) 300-3585.
