Onstage: Shipwrecked!

Shipwrecked! tells the tale of Louis de Rougemont’s life of adventure, tracking him from a sheltered boyhood in Victorian London to a long, eventful sea voyage, shipwreck near Australia; lonely exile on a deserted island; love among the natives; a return to London; media notoriety; and more. It owes a debt to the many tales read to young Louis (Jeffrey Blair Cornell) by his protective mother (one of many roles handled by Mandi Masden): Robinson Crusoe, The Odyssey and The Arabian Nights.

Shipwrecked!, presented by Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, is onstage through June 16. $25-$71. cincyplay.com.
