The Island

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

This is a musical comedy and an upside-down Crusoe story. Robinson is a doctor and unlike Robinson Crusoe, his solitude is voluntary but his island in the Mediterranean Sea is invaded by migrants, NGOs, and guards. Friday is a castaway, the only one from his boat to have survived when sailing from Africa to Italy.
