Synopsis

The Island of Slaves

The Island of Slaves $17.99

Pierre Marivaux trans Neil Bartlett

Published by Absolute Classics

2 Male 3 Female

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

"[Bartlett's] translation finds the barbs in Marivaux's dainty wit; the production has the elegance of a smart cocktail party"
