Get ready to set sail for adventure on the high seas with 

 

Shipwrecked ~An Entertainment~ 

The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as told by himself) 

 

Just as Mark Twain was taking America by storm with stories of adventure on the Mississippi, Louis de Rougemont was cutting a literary swath across England with his own stories of adventures as a seafarer surviving treacherous storms, encountering man eating octopi, being marooned on a south sea island, and outwitting hostile natives. While Twain never claimed his books were anything other than great stories, de Rougemont presented his as a work of nonfiction, a full blown autobiography of a Victorian adventurer. First hailed as a hero, then debunked as a fraud, who was the true Louis de Rougemont? And if the story is entertaining enough, does it really matter?  

   

A cast of thousands (or seven, depending how you count) awaits you in the Playhouse's production of this 'fantastical' story of one man's larger than life existence. Whether truth or fiction, this tall tale is engaging enough that it really doesn't matter!  Starring Greg Jones as Louis, his able assistants in storytelling include Ginger Knox Harmon, Caleb Haycox, Damien Kirkpatrick, Jeremy Lawrence, Cliff Murden, and Kassandra Smith.
