Original title L’île des esclaves (Island of Slaves)
The play is characterized by a mix of genres: Greek characters, a shipwreck leaning towards tragedy, and social commentary. However, the play is essentially a comedy with its confusion of sentiments, exchange of power between masters and valets, and finally the appearance of Arlequin.
The play tells the story of two ancient Athenian aristocrats and their slaves washed ashore after a storm had wrecked their ship. to their surprise they discover that they have landed on an island run by the descendants of former slaves.
A role reversal comedy, masters becoming slaves and the slaves becoming masters.
