Lord of the Flies

23 Jul — 24 Aug 2019

Roslyn Packer Theatre

Sydney Theatre Company presents
By William Golding
Adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams

Kill the pig. Cut its throat. Spill its blood.

When a plane crash leaves a group of schoolboys marooned on a desert island, it isn’t long before rivalries and violence rise to the surface.

William Golding’s Lord of the Flies is a 20th century masterpiece. Written in 1954, it was his first novel, heavily influenced by his experience of the Second World War. In it, he created an enduring modern myth, an examination of humanity’s intrinsic capacity for self-destruction.

An exciting ensemble of both women and men, including Australian screen star Mia Wasikowska (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland) will bring Golding’s island of boys to life. Artistic Director Kip Williams’ staging will make us look on Lord of the Flies with new eyes.
