An old man hobbles onstage and declares, "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." So says Louis de Rougemont. His brave and amazing adventures left nineteenth-century England spellbound. Dare to be whisked away by this heroic tale of the high seas, filled with exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus! Inspired by a true story, Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked examines how far we're willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world.
