"A deft literate narrative folded into a vaudevillian romp."-- Los Angeles Times

Donald Margulies aims to invigorate the imagination of theatergoers with a story about the nature of storytelling. Based on a Victorian hoaxer's tale of being a castaway in the South Pacific--complete with buried treasure, a giant killer octopus, and cannibals--Margulies revisits themes of authenticity and loss as he returns to what theater does best.

Donald Margulies received the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Dinner with Friends , which has been produced throughout the world. Other plays include Sight Unseen (winner of an OBIE Award), Brooklyn Boy , and Collected Stories , among many others.
