Lord of the Flies
Set against the backdrop of a mysterious conflict engulfing the world, a plane carrying a group of evacuated schoolchildren crash-lands on a deserted island. The eleven girls and boys that survive are faced with the challenge of co-existing in a hostile new environment severed from the society they have left behind. Can the children create something better than the war that drove them from their homes, or will the inevitability of human behaviour bind them to the mistakes of the adult world they were raised in? In this dark and contemporary reimagining of a literary classic, the destructive legacy of modern society is exposed on the Northcott stage.
