'Mauritius' Southeastern Premiere



New Theatre presents its final production of the 2008-2009 Season, Mauritius,  making its Southeastern Premiere, by Pulitzer Prize nominated Theresa Rebeck, running April 16 - May 17, 2009. 

"A Sinister Comedy about Stamps" - This sharp, and funny mystery is imported from Broadway. Jackie and Mary are half-sisters whose mother's death leaves them in possession of a rare stamp collection, while battling over who owns the stamps three dealers have designs of their own. Who is friend and who is foe?

"A gifted writer with an expansive mind, willing to explore old terrain to find new paths."  - The New York Times

"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
