Tape follows a classical unity of action, time and space, featuring three characters in a single plot regarding their differing perspectives of some past events. The play takes you right in the center of a sexual misconduct incident that happened between two high school sweethearts Amy and John, shrewdly unraveled by their best friend Vince. After 10 years, these three individuals are forced to reckon with an unresolved trauma.

Decades later, as we witness the conversation on sexual consent unfold so fearlessly in popular media today, this play lays out bare the subtext that lies in between sexual consent and erotica.

Tape raises profound issues about consent, manipulation, power, loyalty, and truth. It raises questions about how we face the truth when our truth differs from another person’s truth. Tape is an unsettling and unpredictable drama about the love-hate chemistry that endures between three friends.

Three friends, who meet after 10 years in one motel room in Lansing, Michigan, argue about an unresolved sexual misconduct incident that had occurred during their final days in high school. Suspense builds as each character is provoked into revealing his or her true nature and motivation.
