"New Adventures and RE:Bourne are delighted to announce a national tour of a thrilling new production of Lord of the Flies, choreographed by Olivier nominated Scott Ambler, adapted and directed by Matthew Bourne and Scott Ambler, based on the classic novel by William Golding.
The action is transferred from deserted island to deserted theatre. A group of schoolboys find themselves abandoned. With no adults around they start to make their own rules and create their own civilisation, before order breaks down and the story builds to an electrifying climax.
With a cast of New Adventures dancers and remarkable young talent from the North West, Goldings legendary characters Ralph, Piggy, Jack and the boys will be brought to life with raw energy and emotional intensity.
Matthew Bournes New Adventures has created some of the most successful shows of the last 25 years, including Swan Lake, Nutcracker! and the sell-out hit, Sleeping Beauty.
Devised and directed by Olivier and Tony award winner Matthew Bourne, choreographed by Olivier nominated Scott Ambler and featuring set and costume design by Olivier Award-winner Lez Brotherston, music by Terry Davies, lighting design by Chris Davey and sound design by Paul Groothuis."More ...
