Robinson Crusoe on Ice is a pantomime based on the Daniel Defoe novel.

The text

Robinson Crusoe, or Friday and the Fairies is a pantomime by Henry J. Byron (1835-1884)[1], based on Daniel Defoe's famous novel, first performed at Covent Garden theatre, Saturday, December 26th, 1868 printed by J. Miles and co., London in the same year. It probably is the main source for most of the subsequent pantomimes inspired by Defoe's novel. In this case the text used for this production on ice is not mentioned, but almost certainly derives from Byron's original version.
