An unsettling and unpredictable drama about the love-hate chemistry that endures between friends, filmed by Richard Linklater in 2001 with Uma Thurman, Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard.

Three friends from high school revisit a shocking event that occurred ten years before. Ruthless accusations, festering resentment and unresolved sexual jealousies are exposed.

Stephen Belber’s play Tape was first produced at the Actors Theatre of Louisville as part of the 2000 Humana Festival of New American Plays. It had its UK premiere at Soho Theatre, London, in 2003.
