After a group of schoolboys survive a massive plane crash, what starts as a classic desert island adventure quickly becomes a struggle for survival that sees them descend into tribalism and bloodthirsty barbarity in a nightmarish world.
Adapted for the stage from Nobel Prize Winner William Golding's Lord of the Flies, one of the most celebrated novels of modern times.
"This adaptation of William Golding's novel is a thrilling descent into horror."- The Telegraph
"Guaranteed to grip older children and adults alike from start to finish."- The Telegraph
"The original 'Lost', in short trousers." - Time Out London
"The memory of chubby, bespectacled terrorized Piggy scrabbling to find a hiding place from a pack of boys high on the thrill of the kill still remains a scary, potent image. Gang rivalry, bullying and peer pressure are all touched on in this riveting, lucid adaptation by Nigel Williams." - Colin
