Tapped is a heart warming comedy that explores the importance of connection, fulfilment and (lack of) hope. 

In Stapleford, Nottingham, aka Stabbo, we meet Gavi, Jen and Dawn at an amateur self-help group who all share one commonality; they’re desperate for escapism.


Tapped is a witty and sensitive portrayal of managing mental health within a family, recognising the complexities of grief, and learning how to find humour in our flaws. 

We all make mistakes and none of us have all the answers, so if we can’t laugh, and eat too many Club biscuits along the way, what’s the point in any of it?

A play about fears, hopes, having big dreams in small places and how the idea of change is far easier said than done. Tapped is co-produced by BCP and Theatre503. 

"Tapped is essentially a feelgood experience" THE TIMES

"Redford is a truly gifted comic writer. Her dialogue is zippy, keenly observed and packed with laughs".


"Redford’s play has a watchable, episodic-TV quality, with amusing dialogue and interesting narrative turns".
