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 directs The Island of Slaves, his brilliant comedy of role-swapping and redemption by bringing the audience right up close to the action - and by transforming the Lyric's auditorium into the beach of a desert island.
