Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys is set to provide the soundtrack for a brand new off-Broadway play in New York later this month.

The rapper, whose real name is Adam Horovitz, will be providing an original score for Gloucester Blue, which was written by his father Israel Horovitz.

According to Off Broadway World, “Gloucester Blue is a black comedy about a man who returns home after a long absence and encounters all manner of infidelities and murders."

Produced by the Barefoot Theatre Company, the performances will take place from November 16 – December 3 at the Cherry Lane Theater.

Check out the video for the band’s last single 'Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win' below. The track is taken from the band's 2011 album 'Hot Sauce Committee Pt.2' and features vocals from Santigold.

The video was directed by Spike Jonze. It clocks in at over 11 minutes long and features the band and Santigold portrayed by action figures and sees them pursued by a team of assassins across the world, forcing them to do battle with sharks, snipers and zombies in the process.
