By Nigel Williams
Adapted from the novel by William Golding

In the midst of a raging war, a group of British school children are left stranded after surviving a devastating plane crash. Ralph is voted the leader over outcast Piggy and rule-breaking Jack. As tensions rise and the hunger for power grows, the group divide and become wildly out of control.

Left to fend for themselves, the children are tested to their limits as they struggle for survival in their new and mysterious surroundings.

Directed by Amy Leach (Macbeth, Oliver Twist, Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet), this must-see production will be a modern staging of William Golding’s menacing 20th Century classic with creatively integrated audio description available at every performance.
