Stuff That Happens in the Play

A ship, captained by the French pirate Albert, is caught at sea in a violent storm.  His fellow Frenchmen on board include the merchant Franville, the gallant Franville, and the gentleman Morillat.  Albert’s prisoner, for whom he has developed feelings, Aminta, and his friend Tibalt are also on the ship.  

Albert struggles to steer his ship to a nearby island, so he tosses cargo, belongings, and treasure overboard in an attempt to lighten the load. 

On the island, two Portuguese castaways, Sebastian and his nephew Nicusa, watch the ship make its way to the beach.  The two men reveal they have been stranded on the island, suffering from hunger and thirst, after being victims of a pirate attack that divided them from their families.

Sebastian and Nicusa tell the newcomers the island is bleak, and though they did hear other people, they could never find them.  While the French fight over the treasure that washed up on shore, Sebastian and NIcusa escape on the French ship.

Albert decides to cross a "hellish river" to find the mysterious individuals, and discovers a community of women led by Rosilla and her daughter Clarinda. 

Courting, taking prisoners, love-triangles, and reunions ensue.
