Tom Hoefner

Tom Hoefner is a native of New York City who began his writing career as a playwright. His most successful play, the adventure/comedy The Unlikely Adventure Of Race McCloud, Private Eye was a participant in the NY International Fringe Festival in the summer of 2009, received a limited-run Off-Off-Broadway revival the following year, and was the basis for his self-published book series The Unlikely Adventure Of Race and Cookie McCloud. He is also the owner and proprietor of Me & Nintendo, a blog in which he pontificates about Nintendo products and culture. Tom holds a Master of Arts in Educational Theater from NYU and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing (Playwriting Concentration) from the Writer’s Foundry at St. Joseph’s College (NY), were he spent 13 years as both a lecturer and as the Director of Student Publications & Dramatics. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Jaime, his daughters, Gabriella and Audrey, and their cat, Zelda. (As in The Legend of, not Fitzgerald.)

In Rap’t Becks and Grover are two twenty-something nobodies living together in Queens, NY, who arrive home one day to find that they have a visitor. Jesus Christ is waiting for them, arrived in His second coming, all set to bring about the Rapture… which, He claims, is all Becks’ fault. Becks and Grover take it upon themselves to convince Christ to stand down. What follows is a comedy of strange negotiations and stranger bedfellows, and a Messiah who may have an ulterior motive for visiting the less-than-impressive pair. (Mature language.)

Rap’t plays at  NY SummerFest at The Hudson Theatre Guild, 441 West 26 Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues). Performances are August 14th at 9pm, 15th at 6:15pm and the 18th at 3:30pm.
