Teatru Manoel Youth Theatre is proud to present Lord of the Flies by Nobel Prize winner William Golding.
The classic novel, a potent allegory about the loss of innocence and the decline of civilization, is brought to dramatic life in Nigel Williams' adaptation.
A plane crashes on a deserted island. The only survivors are a group of young adults. By day, it's a tropical paradise of sun and sea; but each night, their dreams are inhabited by a terrifying beast.
From the comforts of their suburban lives, this well-behaved group turns into a bloodthirsty and murderous tribe. Myth and naturalism combine in a dynamic exploration of power, democracy, and the struggle between the good and evil within us all.
Lord of the Flies raises many issues central to the lives of today's adolescents - peer pressure, bullying, gang rivalry - in it's depiction of reason verses chaos. A timeless piece of work following the central theme of the journey from teen to adulthood, William Golding described writing his novel as 'like lamenting the lost childhood of the world'
