Original novel by: William Golding
Adapted for the stage by: Nigel Williams
Directed by: David G. Cox

''Lord Of The Flies'' is a stage play adapted by Nigel Williams from the 1954 novel by Nobel Prize-winning English author William Golding. Both the novel and the play tell the disturbing tale of a group of British schoolboys stranded on an island and the tension caused by fear and power.

This violent tale of the breakdown of civilised behaviour in a setting of isolation and fear highlights the contrast between cooperation and competition. The story is set against the background of some type of nuclear war and a plane crash that forces a group of British boys to cope with the human need for society and the animal need for survival.

While protecting themselves from the outward threat of the beast, they discover that the real threat is their own primitive impulses.
