Lord of the Flies (2011)
19 May – 18 June
By William Golding;
Adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams
William Golding's seminal book, Lord of the Flies, was brought to the theatre in 2011 in an adaptation by Nigel Williams, it was directed by Artistic Director Timothy Sheader and Liam Steel. Described as a "thrilling descent into horror" (Daily Telegraph), what starts as a classic desert island adventure quickly becomes a struggle for survival as superstition and immorality sees the community slide into a darkly sinister world. Designer Jon Bausor created one of the most impressive sets the theatre has ever produced; the auditorium was converted into a crash site, complete with a cross section of an authentic Boeing 747.
