A BIG FAT LIE BASED ON A TRUE STORY
A Pulitzer Prize winner for Dinner With Friends, masterful American playwright Donald Margulies transforms the true story of a rogue Victorian Fabulist into an outrageously entertaining theatrical treat.
A man survives a catastrophic storm in the Coral Sea, is marooned on a desert island, marries a native princess, discovers a treasure trove of pearls, re-appears 30 years later, sells his fantastic tale to Wide World magazine, and becomes rich and famous as Victorian England swallows his story hook, line and sinker.
Director of 2009's stand-out comedy hit The 39 Steps, Peter Hambleton brings you even more hilarious fun in this sensational evening of 100% Pure Whimsy.
Shipwrecked! An Entertainment.
