About the play
Gather around! The intrepid Louis de Rougemont invites you to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left the nineteenth-century world spellbound.
Written by the Pulitzer-winning playwright Donald Margulies and based on actual events, Shipwrecked! takes audience members of all ages on a high seas adventure populated by exotic islanders, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. Louis’ hair-raising tale – told by three actors and an explorer-sized helping of theatrical magic – challenges us to wonder how far we are willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world.
Shipwrecked! is the third production in the “Penfold in the Park” series, an annual offering of free, outdoor summer theatre, made possible by a partnership with the City of Round Rock Parks & Recreation Department.
Penfold Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
