THIS awardwinning, energetic stage adaptation of William Golding’s classic novel is celebrating its 10th anniversary tour.
When a plane crashes on a deserted island, the only survivors, a class of schoolboys, decide to govern themselves. Yet without the discipline of school or adults their group begins to fracture.
Soon, after discovering “the beast”, their games become increasingly dangerous and the once well-mannered children turn into vicious tribesmen.
