… you can’t ever really destroy your past, and you also can‘t crawl back inside it
The story of Tape
I had the opportunity to collaborate again with Yaller Skunk Theatre Company, with whom I’d enjoyed great success directing the West-End transfer of In My Name when they asked me to direct a revival of Stephen Belber’s celebrated play Tape.
Seizing the chance to work on the play with the two founders of the company – Kevin Watt and Mark Curtis – taking the male roles of Vin and John respectively, we then discovered talented young American actress Tara Carrozza to play the key role of Amy.
This three-hander, charting the relationship between high school friends that plays out over a tense hour in a motel room many years later, opened at The Old Red Lion Theatre, London in April 2010.
