Isle of Slaves on Tuesday 3rd - Saturday 7th July 2018
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.

“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
