Lord of the Flies

Presented by SAYarts in agreement with Faber & Faber


Based on William Golding's seminal and confronting novel, Lord of the Flies, Nigel Williams' adaptation for the stage takes us into the dark psyche of tribalism and survival in a group of young castaways. Set in contemporary Australia, this production, Directed by Zoe Tidmann for SAYarts' Launchpad, explores belonging and exclusion, violence and peace, with a talented cast of 12-21 year old actors.
