STORY LINE: A darkly funny thriller by Theresa Rebeck, about two half-sisters, an inherited collection of rare stamps, and what happens when some questionably-motivated buyers and a pile of money come up for grabs.
The role of MARY is cast.
[JACKIE](20s). Jaded, spent most of her life caring for her mother, who recently died. At odds with her half-sister, goes behind her back to sell off potentially valuable stamps with some shady characters.
[DENNIS](Late 20s/early 30s). A natural charmer, well-spoken and fit, but made some poor life choices in the past. Sees an opportunity in Jackie’s selling of the stamps to make some quick money, grows attracted to her.
[STERLING](40s-50s). A successful, if shady, businessman with a passion for stamps and long speeches. Quick to anger with a violent streak, the actor should be fit and/or physically imposing in some way.
[PHILIP](40s+). Owner of a stamp shop and expert philatelist, whose wife left him years ago. Extremely wary of Sterling, given past betrayal, and does not want to get involved with Jackie and the stamps she brings to his shop.
