Reviews

The acting trio work beautifully together, directed by Rick Barbour with precision as shifts from character to character, and scene to scene, are managed without missing a beat. …you would be well rewarded to make time for Shipwrecked, a totally delightful foray into the art of storytelling.
— Arthur Dorman, Talkin’ Broadway

The play offers plenty of opportunities to, excuse the pun, go overboard, and Barbour and crew take advantage of them. On the other hand, it is billed as “An Entertainment.” And when De Rougemont is confronted with doubters about the truth of his tales, the play takes on a contemporary message. What is truth? Who is a fraud? At one point, the question is posed, “Who’s the bigger fool? He? Or we for believing him?”
—Tom Weber, Post Bulletin, Minnesota
