Cross-curricular study for Lord of the Flies

Date Posted: 24/01/2015

Key Stage 3 to 5 students studying Lord of the Flies can see the practice behind the theory at Regent’s Park this September.

William Golding’s tale of civilisation, human nature and survival has been adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams.

It will be shown as part of Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre season between 3rd and 12th September, before embarking on a UK tour.

In this adaptation of the play, the audience become part of the plane crash. The wreckage of a plane is the centre piece for the set, and everything about it is symbolic.

This reimagining of Lord of the Flies also sets the play against the backdrop of the war on terror rather than during World War Two.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has created an education pack to go along with the show that has been developed with a range of cross-curricular study ideas in mind, including Art, Design, Drama, ICT, English and Maths.
