TAPE is a sordid and beautiful take on human relationships.” -Show Business Weekly

We are a group of L.A. based actors/producers/writers/directors who currently study at Anthony Meindl's Actors Workshop. We are trying to fund our production of Belber's Tape, which means we must meet our goal of 3,000.00 by May 13, 2012.

The finances we are raising are to pay for our venue, production design, production insurance, playbills, publicity, promotional materials, postage, and DVD's for our rewards.

Our performances will be the following days in May, 2012 (21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th) and in June 2012 (4th, 5th, 11th, and 12th). Your help and support is so greatly appreciated! Come by and see the play!

Tape Synopsis:

Jon, an aspiring filmmaker on the verge of hitting it big, hooks up for the weekend with his best friend from highschool, 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 has taped their entire conversation. 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.
