Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked! An Entertainment: The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told by Himself) is inspired by the true story of the unlikely hero who spellbound Victorian England -- and subsequently the world -- with his incredible tale of survival. Bart DeLorenzo directs.
The story is narrated by adventurer Louis de Rougemont, played by award-winning actor Gregory Itzin, who reenacts his lifetime of escapades for the audience. The various other players in Louis' adventures -- including a giant octopus, a faithful dog, a curmudgeonly sea captain and some cagey natives, come to life through seasoned actors Melanie Butiu and Michael David Cassady.
This production replaces the previously announced The Elephant in the Room.
