Theresa Rebeck's family drama of obsession and betrayal comes to the New Theatre

In Pulitzer-nominated Theresa Rebeck's 2007 play, two sisters run aground in the surprisingly grubby arena of philately, after they inherit a stamp collection and attempt to cash in.

In his review of the Broadway premiere of Mauritius, Time Out New York's Adam Feldman wrote: "Rebeck writes punchy dialogue and provides the requisite quota of who’s-zooming-who reversals, affording each character a fair share of venality; the show plays like a softer-nosed version of David Mamet’s rat-race dissections."

This production is directed by Richard Cornally (The Credeaux Canvas; The Bench) and stars Brett Heath, Kitty Hopwood, Peter-William Jamieson, Emma Louise and Andy Simpson.

Loved this production - great direction, script and cast. Who knew a play about philately could be so suspenseful?
