From the Archives – Shipwrecked!

April 16, 2020

This was such a sweet little production – Shipwrecked!: The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as told by himself).

(I’m jumping ahead a bit on the time line since there are some earlier pieces I’d like to share, but they’re in Touchstone’s video archives, not mine, and I’m staying at home as much as possible.)

Vicki Haller Graff, Jp Jordan, and I did this with Margie Anich directing in 2008. Margie came to the table with the script as I remember, written by the Pulitzer Prize winning Donald Margulies, and it was such a perfect fit for our ensemble—physical theatre, actors playing multiple characters, presentational, whimsical, life-affirming. The set was based on an idea developed by Saraceno & Sayre design during the nineteen eighties for our street theatre production, Yellow Moon Jamboree. Seldom have we ever seen a script so perfectly crafted for the kind of work that was natural for us to produce. We couldn’t resist.
