“Kill the beast, Cut his throat, Spill his blood.”
A plane has crashed on an uninhabited island. The only survivors are a group of school boys. There are no homes or schools, no adults, no rules and before long the boys’ fragile sense of order begins to collapse.
With the discovery of ‘the beast’, their games take on a more sinister significance and this once well-behaved group of children quickly turns into a bloodthirsty, murderous tribe.
Lord of the Flies enjoyed hugely successful tours in 2011 and 2012, we celebrated the centenary of William Golding with this classic tale of morality vs. immorality.
