A plane crashes down on a desert island in the middle of the Pacific carrying a group of schoolchildren who are consequently left to their own devices in this little piece of paradise. Inspired by William Golding’s
Lord of the Flies, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, Serge Wolfsperger gets these young amateur actors thinking about the meaning of childhood and the threat that civilisation poses to innocence. The actors and actresses that star in the performance are all pupils at Luxembourg schools and perform in four different languages, namely French, German, English and Luxembourgish. L’Île sauvage is
a smart, multicultural production that
the whole family will be able to relate to.
