GTT thrills with TAPE

Justin Boccitto & The Group Theatre Too, LLC presents
Genre: Drama
Written by STEPHEN BELBER | Directed by JEFF BRELVI
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 ten years ago he date-raped Amy
Randall, a girl whom they both dated in high school—only
then to reveal that he's taped their entire
conversation. And not only that, he's invited Amy to have
dinner with them that night. Beneath its
sus-penseful, high-stakes surface, TAPE examines questions
of motive, memory, truth and perception. Tape enjoyed a
successful run at the Jose Quintero Theater and is also a
popular cult film starring Ethan
Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard and Uma Thurman.
