WaterTower Theatre presents Lord of the Flies
Lord of the Flies is based on the classic novel of the same name by Nobel Prize-winning English author William Golding. Published in 1954, Lord of the Flies was Golding’s first novel. In Lord of the Flies, a plane wreck strands a group of English boys on a deserted island during wartime. As they slowly explore their new-found freedom, what starts out as fun and games turns into a vicious battle for power when the boys split into two opposing tribes: one that strives for civility and another that delights in savage violence. The competition escalates into a dangerous, frightening climax, as this thrilling classic looks into the darker parts of human nature where it’s civilization vs. savagery and the mob vs. morality.
