Dystopian drama in the park
The inspiration for many a dystopia, William Golding's 1954 novel continues to thrill and terrify. Join Ralph, Piggy and the rest of the lost boys on the paradise island from hell. Regent's Park Open Air Theatre is a stunning setting for Nigel Williams' tense adaptation of Lord Of The Flies. He who holds The Conch holds the power. The award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London landmark – a firm fixture of summer in the city, providing a cultural hub in the beautiful surroundings of a Royal Park. Its steeply raked auditorium is one of the largest in London with 1,250 seats, yet those who attend say it is one of the most intimate, one-of-a-kind experiences in the city. "This is a riveting stage version of William Golding's still shattering novel...and it unfolds with a dreadful, compelling inevitability." – Sunday Express "Timothy Sheader's production has the accumulating force of horror needed to pull off this story of schoolboy air-disaster survivors on an uninhabited island, who briefly taste a paradise that is soon lost as they descend into savagery." – Sunday Times Not suitable for children under 5.
