“The cosy Red Lion Theatre is the perfect backdrop for Julia Stubbs’ highly polished production of Tape, which invites the audience to an intimate examination of its three characters… Gabriela Restelli’s set is simple and effective… Kevin Watt (Vin) and Mark Curtis (Jon) create a tangibly tense atmosphere into which steps Tara Carrozza’s Amy in an impressive combination of charisma and vulnerability who is the emotional heart of this production.” Remotegoat

“Stephen Belber’s tense play about fraying friendships…Yaller Skunk founders Mark Curtis (Jon) and Kevin Watt (Vince) play the warring friends with bubbling machismo and Julia Stubbs’ direction sees the tit for tat banter skipping along.” Islington Gazette

“The production crams Tape’s big themes – can people change? does true forgiveness exist, and if people can change sufficiently, do we need it to? – into the intimate space that is the Old Red Lion, with explosive results.” British Theatre Guide
