'A thrilling descent into horror…Timothy Sheader’s staging is nothing less than a triumph…unmissable' ***** Daily Telegraph

William Golding’s 20th century classic Lord of the Flies explodes onto the stage in a remarkable production direct from London’s award-winning Regent’s Park Theatre, creators of the recent smash-hit, To Kill a Mockingbird.

When a group of schoolboys survive a catastrophic plane crash, what starts as a desert island adventure quickly descends into a struggle for survival in a darkly sinister world of superstition and immorality.

Playing to capacity audiences during its original run, this acclaimed production is guaranteed to grip from start to finish.

'A cinematic spectacle' ****  Daily Mail
