News   PHOTO CALL: Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked! at Long Wharf Theatre
Michael Countryman is currently starring in the Long Wharf Theatre's production of Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked! An Entertainment – The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told by Himself).

Previously commissioned by South Coast Repertory, this production began performances Feb. 13 with an official opening Feb. 20. According to press notes, Shipwrecked! follows "an old man named Louis De Rougemont [who] finds that stardom is a fleeting thing. Gaining notoriety at the turn of the century for his fantastic tale of being shipwrecked, living on a remote island with his beautiful islander wife and learning to ride sea turtles, De Rougemont recalls his adventures wistfully even while his audience becomes increasingly more skeptical."

Countryman, a 1987 Drama Desk nominee for his performance in The Common Pursuit, has appeared on Broadway in such shows as Night Must Fall and Laughter on the 23rd Floor. More recently, he was seen by New York audiences in the Atlantic Theatre Company's world-premiere production of Trumpery.

Rounding out the three-person cast are Angela Lin (Coram Boy) and Jeff Biehl (Misanthrope). Evan Cabnet directs the work by Pulitzer Prize winner Margulies.

The production is set to run at New Haven, CT's Long Wharf Theatre through March 16. For more information or tickets, visit
