Overview
3m, 2f / Comedy / Interior Stamp collecting is far more risky than you think. After their mother's death, two estranged half-sisters discover a book of rare stamps that may include the crown jewel for collectors. One sister tries to collect on the windfall, while the other resists for sentimental reasons. In this gripping tale, a seemingly simple sale becomes dangerous when three seedy, high-stakes collectors enter the sisters' world, willing to do anything to claim the rare find as their own. "Unsurprisingly for a writer with extensive experience in TV police procedurals 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, being given its Broadway premiere by the Manhattan Theatre Club, proves otherwise...The sort of well-made, engrossing and unpretentious play rarely encountered on Broadway these days, Mauritius is a welcome introduction to the fall season." -The Hollywood Reporter
