Regent's Park Open Air Theatre

Back in 2011 the Open Air Theatre presented a staging of Lord Of The Flies, the William Golding story of schoolboys stranded on a desert island. Directed by Timothy Sheader, the play proved to be a big success and was a stand-out production amongst a range of well-received shows appearing at Regent’s Park that year.
Now audiences have the chance to pick up theatre tickets once again and witness Lord Of The Flies back on the stage of the Open Air Theatre for the venue’s 2015 season. A limited run of performances is set to take place under the direction of Timothy Sheader (and co-director Liam Steel) and once again it is likely to attract a great deal of attention.
Those stuck on the desert island are choir members and students, but their attempts to survive take a dark turn as their new world descends into society of superstition and savagery. It is a tale that has gripped audiences for over sixty years and it continues to shock and impress to this day.
The original story emerged in 1954, Golding’s first of many highly regarded novels, and it has since been adapted to the stage and screen, with this version adapted to the stage by Nigel Williams in the mid-1990s.
This year the Open Air Theatre welcomes a range of anticipated shows, with the summer months welcoming the likes of The Seagull, Peter Pan and Seven Wives For Seven Brothers, ensuring that crowds continue to flock to Regent’s Park.
Lord Of The Flies runs briefly towards the end of the season, with a limited number of performances beginning on Thursday 3rd September 2015.
