The Dayton Theatre Guild
A world of mystery. A world of intrigue. The world of Philately? We don’t normally equate stamp collecting with conspiracy and danger, but the latest offering by The Dayton Theatre Guild might just make you take a different view of this great American hobby.
The Dayton Theatre Guild presents Mauritius by Cincinnati native Theresa Rebeck, the final show of the 2010 – 2011 season. Performances begin Friday, May 13th and run through Sunday, May 29, 2011. It is directed by Saul Caplan and produced by Debra Kent.
Publisher Samuel French describe Mauritius as follows:
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
The cast includes Amy Brooks (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Amadeus, Streetcar Named Desire, and Beyond Therapy at the Dayton Playhouse), Alex Carmichal (Amy’s View, Bright Ideas, Speaking in Tongues), Geoff Burkman (A Case of Libel, Amy’s View), Teresa Connair (Kimberly Akimbo, Speaking in Tongues and The Spitfire Grill, The Great American Trailer Park Musical at Beavercreek Community Theatre) and Pat Santucci (Amadeus at The Human Race Theatre.)
