Book Review:  Mauritius is a wonderful 21st century example of excellent playwriting. Each scene is calibrated with just the right amount of tension and intrigue to keep the story moving forward. The characters all seem to be balancing on a razor, as they negotiate the power of a stamp collection. That’s right – this tightly wound drama is about a stamp collection, and stamps have never been more interesting or dangerous. While plays are meant to be seen more than read, this was an exciting gasp-out-loud page turner that I recommend to readers and theatre fans alike.
