Henley Street Theatre escorts classic literary works from the page to the stage, enrapturing audiences with both new tales and stories that have withstood the test of time. Based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner William Golding, Lord of the Flies sews together a mélange of symbolism, imagery, and sows’ ears to dissect society’s fragility and the primitive nature of human beings. Theatergoers slink to the edge of their seats as Piggy, Roger, Ralph and a cast of other male, adolescent characters attempt to survive on a deserted island, where established order quickly dissolves into savage acts and lopsided baseball-card trades. Considered among the most important literary works of the last century, Lord of the Flies still buzzes through modern-day lesson plans; this production is recommended for young adults ages 13 and up.
