ó mauritius ☆ Download by È Theresa Rebeck Before I learned how to pronounce the title of this play, I referred to it as the one with the stamps It is about stamps, and it is also really good Stamps in and of themselves aren t riveting, but people obsessed with them are Theresa Rebeck is one of my favorite playwrights Highly recommend this one. A taut play with high stakes and really nice build to the climax I only wish we could have explored the relationship between the half sisters a little. There s stamp mafioso character named Sterling That made me laugh so hard when I read it This was a fun, quirky play I liked the relationship dynamic between Jackie and Dennis and Jackie and her step sister Mary The only character I m still a bit confused by was Phillip but overall I very much enjoyed It was a fast paced and entertaining play.
My theatre is doing this show in a few months and I wanted to read it before I auditioned and I m SO glad I did This is fantastic What I love most is that this story really isn t about stamps it s about family and what really matters Plenty of surprise twists as well. Wow, I was really impressed Every single scene is soooo loaded I mean, everything is just filled to bursting with tension I was also impressed with the dialogue It all seems so natural and it flows just like normal speech where people repeat words, say um, don t finish sentences, and start saying things and then reword but you know exactly what they mean I do wish she hadn t put so much profanity in This would be a great play for middle schools and high schools if it wasn t for that Overall, it was very well done, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Good scenes for classwork All of themGood monologues There are a few very good ones for both men and women I am so confused This play felt a little too much like David Mamet to me, and his tough guy characters I read this in the context of possibly auditioning and the female characters where much interesting to me than the men Granted, I talked to the person who would be directing it a few weeks later and he pointed out to me that the characters should be richer than the stereotypes that I read them as So I m hoping to be proven wrong about the play, but I basically thought it was ok Nothing great.
