The Isle of Slaves

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.

“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
