Vince (Dan Brick) is a self-destructive pot-dealer-cum-volunteer-fireman with entirely too little to do. He visits Jon (Keegan Boulton), his best friend from high school, an ambitious USC-trained film director eager to catch his break at a film festival in Lansing, Mich. Amy (Suzanne Delle), formerly romantically entangled with both, has done well enough to forget about the two of them, working in Lansing as a prosecutor. Throw in a hidden tape recorder and a room at a Motel 6, and it quickly emerges that all three are master manipulators. Under Dominic Antonio D’Andrea’s direction, Yellow Taxi Productions turns Stephen Belber’s caustic Tape into something approaching black comedy—no small feat for a play dwelling on themes of rape, regret, and the malleable nature of truth. The show starts at 10 p.m. (see City list for other dates) at the District of Columbia Arts Center, 2438 18th St. NW. $10. (202) 462-7833. (Mike DeBonis)
