Now on stage


Two half sisters have come into possession of what may or may not be a valuable stamp collection after the death of their mother. As the two contend over who has the greater claim to the inheritance, mutual antagonism and recriminations rise to a fever pitch. A first-rate and thoroughly entertaining thriller/dark comedy about greed, con games, con artists, and exploding emotions. “…Rebeck has crafted a caper that is equally comic and captivating.” Theater Mania


“This terrific cast keeps the twists turning on stage, racheting the tension with each scene until things truly go postal.”
