The UL Department of Performing Arts will present Stephen Belber’s play TAPE February 10, 11, and 12th at 7:30pm in the Burke-Hawthorne Hall on the UL Campus. TAPE tells the story of three high school friends reuniting after ten years in a tense confrontation over the past, the present, memory-- and deception.

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 suspenseful, high-stakes surface, TAPE examines questions of motive, memory, truth and perception.

The play contains mature themes, content and language. The production is intended for ages 14 and up. No children.

Tickets are available at the door. Free for UL students, and faculty. Show prices are $5 for alumni and $10 general admission.  For More Information or to inquire about reservations, contact the Performing Arts Office at 337.482.6357.
