Written by British writer William Golding and published in 1954, the novel Lord of the Flies reveals to us a group of children, in the midst of a wartime evacuation, stranded on an uninhabited island where they try to establish the order of life. Threatened by death, their instinct for survival gradually turns the island into a battlefield of power, leading them into the dark side of human nature. The play extends the story to a point in time when a few of the children become grown-ups and find themselves in a heap of ruins resulting from an air raid of another war. The ambience of the wasteland is reminiscent of the days on the island when they got into fighting, costing the lives of some little friends. Overwhelmed with grief and perplexed by what they have done, they fall into a retrospective journey of the past...
