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

2 Male, 1 Female

Donald Margulies Price: $9.99

The adventurous Louis de Rougemont invites you to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left nineteenth-century England spellbound.

Dare to be whisked away in a story of the high seas, populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus

Shipwrecked examines how far we're willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world

"Recreating the pleasures of 19C platform entertainment with a tart contemporary twist, Shipwrecked offers a self-promoting fabulist a forum to inform and persuade, and it delights in both respects" ~ Variety

"The Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Donald Margulies scampers to the defense of good old-fashioned yarn spinning with Shipwrecked. The breathless story of a Victorian gentleman [and] seafaring wanderer springs to life like a theatrical pop-up book

The audience is left to judge whether he is an inspirational figure touched by imaginative genius or a mere con man

We can also consider the possibility that the hero of this true story based on an untrue story is a little of each" ~ NY Times
