Fishtown Players is back, with Theresa Rebeck’s Mauritius, a tightly-paced comedic thriller about greed, family conflict and the seedy and rarefied world of philately (the art of stamp collecting). Winner of the Eliot Norton award as best new play, Fishtown brings Mauritius to the Rogers Street Theatre in downtown Gloucester, with a cast of local favorites and friends from New York City! M. Lynda Robinson, award-winning actress, director, teacher and playwright will direct.
Jackie, (Cassie Stewart) finds an interesting stamp collection in her mother’s home, and brings it to a shop owned by Phillip, an expert on stamps (Michael McNamara, Fishtown’s Founder). Dennis (Max McNamara) is there, and wants to help Jackie. Mary, Jackie’s half sister (Lily Narbonne*) is spiritually and nostalgically connected to the stamps, and furthermore, Sterling, (Justin Genna*) Phillip’s least favorite person, and Dennis’ cohort won’t stops until he gets ahold of them.
