By William Golding
Adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams
Performed by 4th Year.
In the midst of a war an aeroplane carrying a group of school children is shot down and lands on an island (an idyllic setting), cut off from the outside world. No adults survive and what at first looks like the greatest opportunity for adventure for the children, soon takes a turn. Dreams become nightmares and only the strongest will survive.
Is there evil within us all? There is a struggle between democracy and totalitarianism. A fight for survival as unity is challenged, gangs strategise for dominance and humanity is brought to our attention in a raw and exposed attack of words, images and sound.
