Lord of the Flies
Presented by Kick up the Artz
March 29 @ 8:00 pm - March 30 @ 8:00 pm| $20
A stage play adapted by Nigel Williams from the 1954 novel by Nobel Prizewinning English author William Golding, Lord of the Flies tells the disturbing tale of a group of British school boys stranded on an island and the tension caused by fear and power.
This violent tale of the breakdown of civilized 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.
Kick Up The Artz is a local acting and creative movement training studio preparing young people for future adventures in the Arts.
Two performances: Friday 29th and Saturday 30th March
