Lord of the Flies

Adapted by Nigel Williams
From the novel by Nobel laureate William Golding
Directed by Becky Solis
Scenic and costume design by Yoshinori Tanokura

Imagine Survivor with a dark twist. William Golding’s work features a group of marooned adolescents stranded on an isolated tropical island paradise. They form tribes and play games, but their games— featuring bullying, peer pressure, and gang rivalries—descend into a frightening, primitive world where the survivors must choose between reason and chaos.

Nigel Williams, who worked with Golding on the dramatic adaptation, noted that “I don’t think I have ever read a book that caught the confusions and . . . delights of childhood more accurately – or one that evoked the unformed, and yet so potent, characters that dog everyone’s early years with such vividness or agony. Its view of landscape, friendship, memory and – most important of all – moral and intellectual difficulty seemed as clear and powerful as Greek tragedy.”

This play is appropriate for middle and high school students and adults.
General admission, $12;
Faculty/staff and senior citizens (with ID), $10; Students (with ID), $7; Youth, $5.
For information or ticket reservations, please call 570-422-3483, x 4 or email
