THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 MATINEES: £7 (£5 CONCESSION) RUNNING TIME: APPROXIMATELY 2 HRS By William Golding & adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams Directed by Marcus Romer William Golding's Lord of the Flies, one of the most disturbing and celebrated novels of modern times, is vividly brought to life in Pilot Theatre’s award-winning production. A plane has crashed on an uninhabited island. The only survivors are a group of school boys. There are no homes or schools, no adults, no rules and before long the boys’ fragile sense of order begins to collapse. With the discovery of ‘the beast’, their games take on a more sinister significance and this once well-behaved group of children quickly turns into a bloodthirsty, murderous tribe. “terrifying and exhilarating” - The Guardian “William Golding meets Quentin Tarantino” - Financial Times “Outstanding unforgettable Theatre” - The Daily Telegraph POST SHOW DISCUSSION TUESDAY 18 NOVEMBER (after 8pm show) AUDIO DESCRIBED PERFORMANCE Thursday 20 November 8pm With Touch Tour 7.15pm (please book in advance at box office) SIGNED PERFORMANCE Wednesday 19 November 8pm A free education pack and further resources are available from PILOT TICKET DEAL, Buy a full price ticket for both Lord of the Flies and This Child and save £4.
