WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"A Sinister Comedy about Stamps" - This sharp, funny, and engaging work straight from its Broadway premiere keeps us at the edge of our seats hinged on each plot twist. Jackie and Mary are half-sisters whose mother's death leaves them in possession of a rare stamp collection, while battling over who owns the stamps three dealers have designs of their own. Who is friend and who is foe? "A gifted writer with an expansive mind, willing to explore old terrain to find new paths." - The New York Times "Unsurprisingly for a writer with extensive experience in TV police procedural like NYPD Blue and Law & Order: Criminal Intent, one of Rebeck's strengths is her skill at stitching tension into every exchange. The five characters in Mauritius pair up and face off in shifting configurations, the emotionally fraught edges of their twisty encounters made all the more intriguing by the fact that items as apparently innocuous as postage stamps fuel the friction." -Variety "One wouldn't think that the subject of rare stamps would make for gripping, entertaining theater, but Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius... proves otherwise" -The Hollywood Reporter
