Shipwrecked at the Brockley Jack

Shipwrecked! An entertainment - the Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont  (as told by himself) 
by Donald Margulies

Tuesday 9 December to Sunday 4 January
Press Night: Thursday 11 December at 7.45pm  

Louis de Rougemont took Victorian England by storm with his tales of adventure on the high seas.  It was a story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left his readers spellbound.  Embarking on an epic journey, Louis encounters extraordinary creatures and strange islands, overcomes storms, shipwreck and attacks by a native tribe and a man-eating octopus, only to return to London thirty years later to publish his exploits.

Shipwrecked is a story that captivated and divided nineteenth century society.  Is Louis de Rougemont an adventurer capable of amazing deeds, or is he merely a teller of tall tales?

Produced by the same team behind The Mystery of Irma Vep (nominated for five Off West End Awards, including best director and best production), Ghost Train, Around the World in 80 Days and Sleepy Hollow.
