LORD OF THE FLIES
by Nigel Williams
by kind permission of Faber & Faber
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, performers and journalists.
