WHY

Mauritius was a later addition in the 2018-2019 season. While the show is "about" stamp collecting, the heart of the story lays in its fast-paced dialogue and focus on tense family relationships. The characters are quickly established and hyper-specific, allowing audiences to fall into the story and its MANY twists and turns. This play was chosen for the 18-19 season because of its brilliant writing, dynamic characters, and mystery.

WHAT

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.
