Directed by Gabrielle Houle.

Slave Island is a one-act play that questions social order and mocks human vices using light comedy, a utopian setting, and the beloved characters of the Commedia dell’Arte. First performed in 1725 by the famed Italian Comedy in Paris it was later called a “little jewel” by Beaumarchais, the author of the Figaro Plays and a contemporary of Marivaux.

Suitable for Grades 9-12 & Cegep.
