In the week leading up to TIC's 35 production, MAURITIUS, we're asking our cast and crew a few quick, fun, questions!

We had to start with the talented Emily Nash, who plays Jackie, the beating heart at the center of this play about two sisters, two stamps, and a pile of cash.
Tell us about Jackie and what draws you to playing her?
Jackie will stop at nothing to get what she wants. She's a younger sister (just like me!), and I love that she's so outspoken, resourceful, tenacious, and darkly funny. I like to think I have some of those qualities. Jackie has been a dream role of mine for a while, and I'm super excited to get to tackle this part and this play with TIC!
Our show revolves around a stamp collection. Do you, or have you, ever had a collection of some kind?
When I was a kid, I had an embarrassingly large collection of snow globes. I would receive them as gifts, and buy them myself on trips, and I accumulated so many that my parents had to buy me a giant shelf for my childhood bedroom to store all of them! I think, thankfully, most of them have since landed in a dumpster (though I did hold on to one or two!).
