Shipwrecked! An Entertainment - The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told by Himself)

Oil Lamp Theater
1723 Glenview Road Glenview

Based on the true story of the Swiss explorer who claimed to have daring adventures in the Asian-Pacific, SHIPWRECKED! will take you to "a new uncharted realm of whimsy and adventure" (Montgomery News). Watch Louis de Rougemont take London at the turn of the nineteenth century by storm as he tells audacious tales of the high seas. Filled with exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles, and a monstrous man-eating octopus, SHIPWRECKED! will leave you wondering "whether he is an inspirational figure touched by imaginative genius or a mere con man" (The New York Times). This "quirky and wondrous" (Montgomery News) play examines how far we're willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world. This show will take place in a new outdoor venue located at St. David's Episcopal Church at 2410 Glenview Road in Glenview.
