Shipwrecked! An Entertainment
The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told By Himself)
By Donald MarguliesThompson Shelterhouse | May 18 - June 16, 2013
Hear the fantastic and amazing story of Louis de Rougemont, a would-be explorer who embarks from Victorian England on a daring expedition only to find himself marooned on a remote desert island. That's when the real adventure begins for Louis and his faithful dog Bruno: Typhoon! Killer octopus! Flying wombats! Cannibals! As Louis' breathless tale grows larger and larger, the boundary between truth and fiction blurs. Inspired by a true story, this charming, family-friendly frolic by a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright celebrates the magic of theatre and imagination.
"Good old-fashioned yarn spinning." – The New York Times
Blake's Take: A marvelous adventure or a fantastical tall tale? This play reveals how the power of great storytelling can enchant us all — grandparents, parents and kids alike!
Advisory: Shipwrecked! is recommended for ages 8 and up. It's a lot of fun. It contains some mild Victorian-era language. The show runs approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission. Please contact the Box Office if you have questions or require additional information.
