William Golding's Lord of the Flies, one of the most disturbing and celebrated novels of modern times, is vividly brought to life in Pilot Theatre's award-winning production.
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.
