Lord of the Flies,

By William Golding

Adapted by Nigel Willams


Directed by Annie Rigby

Designed by Andrew Stephenson


A plane crashes on an uninhabited island and the only survivors, a group of school children, wait to be rescued.


With no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate; they can do anything they want. As they attempt to forge their own society, leaders are elected and splinter groups form. As order collapses, terror begins its reign and the children degenerate into savagery.


William Golding gives the traditional adventure story an ironic, devastating twist. First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies is now recognised as a classic, and is a memorable tale about the end of innocence, and humankind’s intrinsic evil nature.


Following Gala’s recent production of Two, we are delighted to be co-producing this dramatic and compelling tale exploring the dark side of humanity.
