Gather around! The intrepid Louis de Rougemont invites you to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left the nineteenth-century world spellbound. Written by the Pulitzer-winning playwright Donald Margulies and based on actual events, Shipwrecked! takes audience members of all ages on a high seas adventure populated by exotic islanders, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. Louis’ hair-raising tale – told by three actors and an explorer-sized helping of theatrical magic – challenges us to wonder how far we are willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world.
