Event

Shipwrecked
An old man hobbles onstage and declares, "I'm about to tell you a story. A fantastic and amazing story! A story all the more remarkable because every word of it is true." So begins Shipwrecked! An Entertainment. From there, we are drawn into Louis' world. We see him as a sheltered young boy, engrossed in

Robinson Crusoe and Arabian Nights. That young boy grows into a restless young man who takes his first step towards independence. He leaves his home at the age of sixteen, bound for Australia on a pearling expedition.

The journey is arduous but the outlook is bright. Until a great storm arises and the ship is capsized. All the men, save Louis, are drowned. Days later, Louis (along with the ship's dog Bruno) washes up on dry land. He is safe but alone.

From there, his story grows more fantastic. He does gymnastics on the beach to pass the time. He rides on the backs of sea turtles. He meets and marries an Aboriginal woman, visits her tribe and is made their king. He longs for home and eventually is rescued. Thirty years after leaving London, he returns home.

Upon his return, Louis sells his amazing story to Wide World Magazine and becomes an overnight celebrity. His hero status is threatened when people begin to question his claims. Are Louis' adventures real or just a figment of his imagination? Did he really do all those amazing things? Will Louis be vindicated or will his reputation be
sullied forever?
