In this wickedly funny and riveting thriller, cash and allegiances change hands as two sisters and three collectors battle over a pair of rare stamps that could be worth millions. Mauritius explores the lengths we are willing to go to for fortune… and freedom.
“One wouldn’t think that the subject of rare stamps would make for gripping, entertaining theater, but Theresa Rebeck’s Mauritius [is] the sort of well-made, engrossing and unpretentious play rarely encountered on Broadway these days.” -The Hollywood Reporter
“You can’t dismiss the pleasurable kick of watching a woman…take on a slew of Mamet-esque thugs.” –New York Times
Producing Ensemble Director’s Comments: We’re kicking off Season 6 with a regional premiere from one of America’s best writers. Theresa Rebeck has crafted a wonderfully taut drama about stamp collecting, of all things! This story twists and turns like a classic mystery as the five characters jockey for position and a possible fortune. Who knew stamp collecting was a life-and-death proposition?
