A Piper Fundraiser
Friday, May 24th and Saturday, May 25th - 7 pm and 11 pm
TAPE tells the story of two former best friends from high school, Jon, an aspiring filmmaker and Vince, a dope-dealing volunteer firefighter, who meet up for the weekend in their hometown of Lansing, Michigan. Over the course of the evening, the ten-year high school reunion slides inexorably from friendly catch-up conversation into disturbing interrogation. Beneath its suspenseful, high-stakes action, TAPE examines questions of motive, memory, truth and perception.

On chilled night, a brilliant young scientist brings a corpse back to life. Mary Shelley’s classic tale of horror will be augmented by live music and original rear projections. Six short films have been commissioned to filmmaker Jeremy Mather which will be sent out virally over six weeks prior to the production. Each film will offer a glimpse into the mystery of the man behind the Creature. A piece for adults and brave children.
