WCT Debuts ‘I’m Not Rappaport’ on Sept. 19

Directed by Emmy-Award-winner, Lester Colodny, “I’m Not Rappaport” by Herb Gardner portrays the lives of two old men and their confrontations with each other and outsiders against the backdrop New York City’s Central Park.

The comedy focuses on the lives of Nat Moyer, a feisty Jew played by Fred Tisch, and Midge Carter, a cantankerous African-American, played by David Tate. The two men spend their days sitting on a park bench, trying to avoid life in a nursing home, while fighting off predatory muggers and solving the problems of the world.

They both mask the realities of aging, sharing tall tales that Nat spins. The play humorously touches on society’s treatment of the aging, the difficulties dealing with adult children who think they know what is best for their parents, and on the real dangers that lurk in urban areas.
