Play description:

As two half-sisters deal with the aftermath of their mother’s death, they rediscover their grandfather’s book of rare stamps.  One wants to sell for a windfall and the other wants to save the book for sentimental reasons.  Enter 3 sleazy collectors who try to snake the book from the sisters.  Filled with twists and turns of deceit, this comedic/drama will be sure to please.

Philip – 40s-70s – Shop owner who Jackie approaches about getting the stamps appraised.

Dennis – late 20s-60s – Hangs around Philip’s shop and is looking to score something big.

Sterling – 40s-80s – Sterling is the “money”.  He is a wealthy collector looking for his next rare find.
