The Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater presents Shipwrecked! An Entertainment, a play by Donald Margulies, directed by Daisy Walker, running Friday, July 2nd through July 25th. See it Wednesday through Sunday at 7 p.m. on the company’s new outdoor Garden Stage.
The play relates the tall tale of Louis de Rougemont, who claimed to have been a castaway for 30 years. He returned to society, wrote a book about it, and became a celebrity — that is, before his backstory began to unravel. The play is about bravery, fabulous beasts, exotic locations, and survival on the high seas — but it is also about what we are willing to believe for the sake of a good story. Tickets are $35 at what.org.
