TAPE - A Thrilling Play by Stephen Belber
Jon, an aspiring filmmaker on the verge of hitting it big, hooks up for the weekend with his best friend from high school, Vince, a volunteer fireman who makes his money selling dope. Jon's new film is being shown at a festival in Lansing, Michigan, and Vince has come from Oakland to see it. Over the course of the evening, Vince finally gets Jon to admit that back in high school he date-raped Amy Randall, a girl whom they both dated. And not only that, he's invited Amy to have dinner with them that night. Beneath its suspenseful, high-stakes surface, TAPE examines questions of motive, memory, truth and perception.

"when it comes to reminding us just why we leave our homes on a cold winter's night and seek the special joys of a live theatrical performance, playwright Stephen Belber has the big guys beat" Wall Street Journal. "TAPE is a sordid and beautiful take on human relationships." Show Business Weekly.
