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.
