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.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
