The Basement Tapes

The Basement Tapes

Following her grandmother’s death, a girl faces the overwhelming task of clearing out the basement. She discovers a series of mysterious tape recordings made by her grandmother. As she hears these tapes for the first time, things start to unravel...

Twin Peaks meets Serial in this award-winning New Zealand mystery, which combines the immediacy of physical performance with the imaginative capabilities of audio recording. Squeezed close together among the detritus of a cluttered basement, audience and performer face the waves of secrets and memories that emerge.

★★★★ “unearths a family secret that blurs the lines between reality, memory and much more...you’ll be grateful if you’re sat with your back against the wall.” The Skinny

★★★★ “Unnerving from the earliest moments, the piece never goes where you expect and this quality of a constantly shifting narrative combined with a quiet humour is what makes the piece so riveting.” The Reviews Hub
