Mauritius, With Adams, Kuhlman, Lang and More, Makes Chicago Debut

News   Mauritius, With Adams, Kuhlman, Lang and More, Makes Chicago Debut Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius, the tale of family rivalry and shady stamp dealers, makes its Chicago area debut Feb. 25 at Northlight Theatre in Skokie, IL.

Rick Snyder directs the production, featuring Anne Adams, Lance Baker, Gary Houston, Dan Kuhlman and Suzanne Lang. Performances play to April 5. Opening is March 5 at 7:30 PM.

According to Northlight, "The stakes are high when half-sisters inherit a book of rare stamps that may include the 'crown jewel' of the stamp-collecting world. The battle for possession takes a dangerous turn when three rival collectors enter the sisters' world, willing to go to any lengths to stake their claim on the find."

Mauritius was written by the Pulitzer Prize-nominated author of Omnium Gatherum and The Scene.

The design team includes Tom Birch (set), Nan Zabriske (costume), Robert Christen (lighting), Andrew Hansen (sound) and Dan Katz (props). The fight consultant is Joe Dempsey. Rita Vreeland is the stage manager and the dramaturg is Meghan Beals McCarthy.
