Lord of the Flies

COVID-19 Update August 18.
Please note that we have been forced to make the unfortunate decision to postpone both performances this weekend until further notice. Once we have some clarity around alert level changes we will update the new dates.

Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery School Senior Drama presents William Golding’s famous play, Lord of the Flies. A plane wreck strands a group of students on a deserted island during wartime. As they slowly explore their newfound freedom, what starts out as fun and games turns into a vicious battle for power when the groups 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.

If you remember this play from your English class you may note the names have been changed in our version to reflect a gender neutral cast.
