Lord of the Flies

Maybe there is a beast. Maybe it’s just us.

When a plane crash leaves a group of schoolboys marooned on a desert island, it isn’t long before they descend into rivalries, chaos and violence.

Artistic Director Kip Williams’ staging makes us look at Lord of the Flies with new eyes. An exciting ensemble of adult actors, including Australian screen star Mia Wasikowska (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland) will bring Golding’s island of boys to life, showing how quickly small cruelties can escalate. More than just pig’s blood will be spilled.

William Golding’s Lord of the Flies is a 20th century masterpiece, as relevant today as it was on its publication in 1954. In it, Golding created an enduring modern myth, examining humanity’s terrifying capacity for self-destruction.

Don’t miss this powerful and thrilling retelling of a classic.
