Scene:

A plane crashes on an uninhabited island. Several schoolboys survive the wreckage to find themselves masters of a deep green jungle, an endless blue sea, smoldering sands, and a hilltop, allowing them to survey their new, adult-free kingdom.

William Golding’s iconic tale takes the classic adventure narrative and gives it a devastating twist. Playful games and youthful taunts quickly descend into feverish dreams and a pervasive, haunting fear of “the beast” – – – invisible, yet alive within us all, capable of horrific and unspeakable violence.

Golding’s tale, chilling as it may be, allows us to connect to a primal and primitive side of our nature; to flirt with the concept of lawlessness and anarchy; to dance; to chant; to feast; and, most of all — to lose control.

Join us on Feb. 27-29 at 7 p.m.
