By Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Dana Pellebon

Stamp collecting is far more risky--and funny--than you might imagine. A woman inherits her mother’s stamp collection. Or does it belong to her half-sister? The stamp collection seems to contain some very valuable stamps. Or does it? Enter three seedy, high-stakes collectors, willing to do anything to get hold of the possibly rare find. Theresa Rebeck, with her extensive experience writing for “NYPD Blue” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” fills this show with nuanced tensions and quirky humor to create a very dramatic comedy.
