Shipwrecked! An Entertainment by Donald Margulies

South Coast Repertory and the Geffen Playhouse

“With the cast, helmer and designers of its 2007 South Coast Rep premiere still aboard, Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked! offers Geffen Playhouse audiences more of just about everything -- more lights, more spectacle, more audacity -- at no sacrifice of the improvisatory, two-planks-and-a-passion quality marking this exuberant tall tale as a product for the stage and no other medium. If anything on the boards today could prompt a young viewer to aver, 'I not only want to see more theater, I want to make it,' this is the one.” – Bob Verini, Variety

World premiere at South Coast Repertory, September 2007

Los Angeles premiere at the Geffen Playhouse, June 2008
