“I’m about to tell you a story. A fantastic and amazing story! A story all the more remarkable because every word of it is true.”
Based on the true story of the Swiss explorer who claimed to have daring adventures in the Asian-Pacific, SHIPWRECKED! will take you to “a new uncharted realm of whimsy and adventure” (Montgomery News). Watch Louis de Rougemont take London at the turn of the nineteenth century by storm as he tells audacious tales of the high seas. Filled with exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles, and a monstrous man-eating octopus, SHIPWRECKED! will leave you wondering “whether he [the explorer] is an inspirational figure touched by imaginative genius or a mere con man” (The New York Times). This “quirky and wondrous” (Montgomery News) play examines how far we’re willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world.
The performance is 90 minutes long without an intermission.
