TALKING SHADOWS THEATRE COMPANY
LORD OF THE FLIES

Monday August 22nd - Saturday August 27th 2022
William Golding’s haunting tale is one of the world’s best-loved and most terrifying novels.
Pack mentality and loyalty collide when a group of stranded schoolchildren,
cut off from civilisation, desperately seek to impose order on a strange, isolated island.
But their efforts result in a devastating loss of innocence... and life.
Our company name is inspired by Shakespeare’s assertion that:
“Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
We are dedicated to nurturing young and emerging talent,
and Artistic Director Rebecca Vines has been bringing
critically acclaimed and sold-out shows to the Edinburgh Fringe since 2003,
helping to launch the careers of actors, theatre makers, musicians and journalist
We are delighted to be working with our old friends at Spaces in 2022.
You can find our Niddry Street venue just off the Royal Mile:
easy to find, close to all the action, and a perfect place to meet friends.
