28 - 5IA0202007e031 - Dubuque Fly-By-Night Productions Presents "Shipwrecked!" By Donald Margulies - SHIPWRECKED! AN ENTERTAINMENT
The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont
(As Told By Himself)
By Donald Margulies
Directed by Doug Donald

The adventurous Louis de Rougemont invites you to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left 19th century England spellbound. Dare to be whisked away in a story of the high seas, populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. SHIPWRECKED examines how far we're willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world. A good old-fashioned yarn to delight adolescent children and adults.
