THE ISLE OF SLAVES
By Pierre de Marivaux.
Performed by Cygnet Company.
Directed by Alistair Ganley.
Join the Cygnet Company this summer for a classic role-reversal comedy by the great C18th dramatist Pierre Marivaux.
Marooned on a mysterious island run by former slaves two put-upon servants switch places with their masters and discover the pleasures – and dangers – of wielding authority over another human being.
The Isle of Slaves is a playful exploration of class, power and responsibility which seeks to amuse as much as it enlightens.
Cygnet 2015 Production of Marivaux’ The Triumph of Love reviews:
“charming their audience with comedy and a sweet belief in the power of love to prevail.” Lucy Corley Review Hub
“Alistair Ganley directed a talented team of young performers whose abundant energy lured us into the labyrinthine plot, full of preposterous twists and turns.” Avril Silk remotegoat
