Lord of the Flies

adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams

(Published by and licensed from Faber & Faber Ltd.)

We are excited to bring to life this classic and powerful story of a group of school children’s abandonment on a desert island, which gradually descends into a savage fight for survival.

Lord of the Flies has huge relevance for today’s audience and our open-air stage is the perfect setting upon which to present this electrifying production created by TYD Theatre Makers (as part of Tolethorpe Youth Drama).

Performances 13 July (7.45pm), 14 July (1.30pm), 15 July (1.30pm)
