About the play
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 adult actors, including Australian screen star Mia Wasikowska (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland) will bring Golding’s island of boys to life. Lord of the Flies director (and STC’s Artistic Director) Kip Williams’ staging will make us look on this play with new eyes.
Play running time: 7:30pm-9:15pm (1hr 45mins, no interval)
The Risky Stuff: Adult themes, violence, strong language, theatrical blood, theatrical haze and smoke, strobe lighting and complete theatrical blackouts. Subject to change.
