Details

Matthew Bourne’s 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.

Now the company unites a cast of New Adventures dancers with remarkable young talent from the South West, in an extraordinary adaptation of William Golding’s classic novel, Lord of the Flies choreographed by Olivier nominated Scott Ambler. As the schoolboys find themselves abandoned in a deserted theatre, Golding’s legendary characters are brought to life with raw energy, emotional intensity and breathtaking performances. Civilisation crumbles and the rulebook is forgotten as the story builds to an electrifying climax.

Chilling, beautiful and hugely entertaining, Lord of the Flies will enthral Bourne fans and inspire a generation of new audiences.

Extraordinary. An exhilarating adaptation. You are simply gripped by the power and emotion of the story-telling

A superbly visceral version of Golding’s novel. Astonishing, memorable ★ ★ ★ ★

Matthew Bourne has done it again ★ ★ ★★ ★

Torquay Herald Express

This is dance primed and weighted with menace and taut with tension. Bourne at his best.
