Island of Slaves
What will become of us? Four people, the sole survivors of a shipwreck, crawl out of the sea. Two of them are masters, and two of them are servants, and all four are about to discover what life feels like when the boot is on the other foot. Marivaux's potent mix of laughter, emotion and theatrical game-playing makes him one of the most surprising and most modern of all classic playwrights. Neil Bartlett has adapted this brilliant comedy of role-swapping and redemption, which premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith in April 2002.
