Shipwrecked! An Entertainment:  
The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as Told by Himself)

By Donald Margulies 
Directed by Scott Lafeber     


A Boston Premiere


At sixteen, Louis de Rougemont leaves his sickbed and London home, vowing to see  the world. As he climbs aboard a ship of pearl divers, a typhoon hits, leaving him stranded on an island.  Thirty years later, hailed as a hero, he returns to Victorian London with a tale so amazing it’s hard to  believe it's true. Filled with theatrical magic and “good old-fashioned yarn spinning” (The New York  Times),  this magical story encompasses exotic lands, extraordinary creatures and incredible adventures.
