Following a successful opening weekend, Theresa Rebeck’s “Mauritius” is continuing its run through Saturday, Feb. 27. at Marshall University’s Francis Booth Experimental Theatre. Starring Story Moosa, Ethan Lyvers, Remy Sylvain, Mandy Harper and MG Dalton, the five-character family drama was directed by associate professor Nicole Perrone. Each performance is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.

This weekend’s run may bring with it a new kind of exhilarated energy. Recently, Moosa shared

an image of her in the play on social media, to the delight of the play’s author Theresa Rebeck.

“You look sensational,” Rebeck wrote to Moosa over Twitter.

“Mauritius” opened February 18 to rave audience reactions. The play’s small cast and intense narrative structure lent it to a movement-based rehearsal process. Michael Chekhov’s technique

of acting from the outside-in manifested itself in the show’s production.
