ACT OUT OPENING: A Chicago Premiere Shipwrecked! An Entertainment

The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont 
(as told by himself)
By Donald Margulies
Directed by Ian Frank

Part of Redtwist's off-night series called MORE RED. Performed in rotating rep with Redtwist's MAIN season show, Elemeno Pea, and its DARK RED late-night series show, Men Exposed.

The MORE RED series at Redtwist features exciting young directors and actors from local college programs. And the cast are some of the finest actors to emerge from The Theatre School at DePaul University in recent years. 
A dazzling story like nothing you've ever seen, recounting the endless adventures of one man covering the globe at the close of the 19th century as he shares his ravishing tales. Storytelling for the ages.

Ian Frank has directed and assisted at Milwaukee Repertory Theater, The Kennedy Center, Actors Theatre of Louisville, and Chicago Shakespeare Theater assistant directed the Jeff Award winning SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE. Ian is a graduate of the MFA Directing program at The Theatre School at DePaul University where he directed THE ROYAL HUNT OF THE SUN, PRIVATE LIVES, RICHARD III, MOBY DICK, DOUBT, and BROADSWORD.
