Lord Of The Flies


  • Main Auditorium, 7.30pm
  • Sun 14 Jul
  • Coombe Performing Arts Academy – Coombe Boys’ School (CAPA)

Strobe lights, haze, smoke and loud noises will occur throughout the performance.

Lord of the Flies is a compelling production delivered by an exciting ensemble of young men. When a plane crash leaves a group of schoolboys marooned on a desert island, it isn’t long before rivalries and violence rise to the surface. At first, the boys enjoy their freedom, playing and exploring the island, but soon the group splits into – those who attempt to preserve the discipline and order they had learned from society, and those who choose to give in to every instinct and impulse, no matter how barbaric.

CAPA is made up of 100 young men from Coombe Boys’ School and boys from the Malden & Coombe Cluster Primary schools. The Drama Department at Coombe Boys’ has a reputation for creating high quality performance work whilst generating an ethos of inclusion and an environment in which anything is possible!

Lord of the Flies by William Golding is adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams.
