With the admirable mission of bringing edgy theater to the 'burbs, Down Every Street Productions made an auspicious debut in July, mounting Stephen Belber's dark and perversely funny Tape
. Energetically directed by Natalie Stackhouse, the show featured only three characters, played by present or former Johnson County Community College students. They must be doing something right over there in the theater department -- all three actors were more than decent -- but there was lightning bottled up in young actor Peter Macy. Playing a character fueled by beer, cocaine and long-simmering jealousy, he provoked both fear and empathy while embodying the human equivalent of an open wound.
