Why See Mauritius?
The world of stamp collecting is more dangerous than you ever thought. After their mother's death, two sisters discover a book of rare stamps. Enter three high-stakes collectors, who will do just about anything to own it.
A GRIPPING NEW PLAY from the enterprising author of such acclaimed hits as The Scene, Bad Dates and Omnium Gatherum (for which she and her co-author earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination). Jackie and Mary are half-sisters whose mother’s death leaves them in possession of a rare stamp collection.
But which sister actually owns the stamps? Which of three dealers can be trusted with their sale? And where do we choose to live: the present or the past? Tightly woven and ever-surprising, this sinister comedy marks Theresa Rebeck’s first collaboration with MTC, as well as her Broadway debut.
The cast features Alison Pill, recently seen in MTC's Blackbird, and Bobby Cannavale (Hurlyburly, "Will and Grace"). A co-production with the Huntington Theatre Company.
