Lord of the Flies

Thu 19th – Sat 28th Apr 2012


“Whose side are you on?”





Eat My Box


12 boys are stranded on a desert island. No adults. No boundaries. No rules.

Lord of the Flies, adapted by Nigel Williams, arrives exclusively at the Oxford Castle this March. From the creative team behind the ‘The Pillowman’, we invite you for a gripping insight into the darker side of human nature.

Lord of the Flies is a novel by Nobel Prize-winning author William Golding about a group of British boys stuck on a deserted island who try to govern themselves, with disastrous consequences. Its stances on the already-controversial subjects of human nature and individual welfare versus the common good earned it position 68 on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 1990–1999. In 2005 the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005.
