In Shipwrecked! An Entertainment, three performers enact a dazzling adventure tale using the simple magic of the theater. In tones somewhere between storybook narrator and sideshow barker, a middle-aged charmer named Louis de Rougemont unfolds a tale of sailing to a South Seas paradise to dive for pearls, evade monsters of the deep, and survive for decades among the natives. Two other actors not only play all the remaining roles, from a crusty sea captain to a trusty dog, they also create a world of live sound effects that bring the globe-spanning story to life. Written by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Collected Stories and Dinner with Friends, this raucous fantasy challenges audiences to think about the delicate dance between truth and fiction - are the lives we lead enough to make a mark on the world, and in the grand scheme of things, does that matter?
