TAPE by Stephen Belber

directed by Sam Helfrich

Design by David Blais 

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. The old friends meet up at a Motel 6 in Lansing, Michigan, where Jon's new film is being screened at a film festival, but Vince has more than one reason to make his way all the way to Lansing: his old high school girlfriend, Amy, also lives there. Over the course of a pulsating, tension-filled evening, Vince gets Jon to reveal a dark secret from their past which continues to haunt both of the men, and when Amy eventually joins them, their shared past finally catches up with all 3 of them, setting off a wildly unpredictable chain of events with consequences both laughable and tragic. Beneath its suspenseful, high stakes surface, Tape examines questions of motive, memory, truth and perception, and asks us whether we can ever escape those formative high school years.
