Coming Up

4 November 2016 to 12 November 2016

By Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Lloyd Spencer

After the death of their mother, estranged half-sisters, Jackie and Mary, inherit a prized stamp collection. Jackie aims to sell it and clear her debts. A brief hesitation from a valuer confirms her suspicions; that within the collection lies a fortune in the form of two of the world's rarest stamps.

Mary however has no intention of selling.

Whilst the two siblings argue about what to do, Jackie's stunt has attracted the attention of con men and more dangerous players besides. With the stakes so high, betrayal lurks around every corner. It soon becomes evident some will go to any lengths to secure the collection. Against the odds, unlikely alliances are formed, but ultimately only one can walk away with the prize...
