Lord of the Flies

By William Golding
Adapted for the Stage by Nigel Williams

After a devastating plane crash, an ordinary group of schoolboys finds itself marooned on an island. At first, it seems as though it’s all going to be great fun, but before long, the fun becomes furious, and life on the island turns into a nightmare of panic and death. As ordinary standards of behavior collapse, the world the boys know collapses with them—the world of cricket, homework, and adventure stories—and another world is revealed: one that is both primitive and terrible.
