Fantastic reviews for Lord of the Flies

Friday 9 October 2015

When a group of schoolboys survive a catastrophic plane crash, what starts as a desert island adventure quickly descends into a struggle for survival in a darkly sinister world of superstition and immorality.

The Corn Exchange stage has been turned in to a desert island this week, complete with a wrecked plane, a beach and a jungle. By the end of the week, nearly 5000 people will have seen the production.

There are still tickets available to performances today and tomorrow. To book, visit the Lord of the Flies event page here.

The reviews have been brilliant:
