The Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, D.C. is a self-producing festival that allows emerging artists to mount their work. Now in its fifth year, it will run in July 2010, with over 1200 productions staged in numerous venues across Washington, D.C.
The Alchemy Art Project and Seven Ages are two aspiring theatre companies that have been formed by recent theatre graduates of the University of Miami, Cornell University, Illinois Wesleyan University, and Armstrong Atlantic State University. They are jointly staging TAPE, by Stephen Belber for the Capital Fringe Festival. Tape is scheduled for five performances during the Festival during the period July 8th through July 23rd.
Based on a three-character, one-act play, Tape is set entirely in Room 19 of a seedy motel in Lansing, Michigan rented by Vince, a ill-tempered, outgoing party animal/drug dealer who's visited by his old high school friend Jon, a documentary filmmaker, where they pass the time reminiscing about the good old times which take a turn when Vince records their conversation with Jon admitting to a possible date-rape of Vince's old girlfriend Amy, who later shows up and opens up a new wave of talk and arguments about whose story is fact or fabricated.
Summary by Matthew Patay
We are attempting to raise during June, 2010 $5000-7500 to pay for the expenses of putting on Tape. Smaller donations help. Bigger donations are obviously very welcome. As you can see below, we have arranged for donations to be made in a tax deductible manner.
