Lord of the Flies, by William Golding
Adapated for the stage by Nigel Williams

Directed by Glenn Vaughan

A plane carrying a group of school children crash lands on a deserted island. With no adult survivors, the kids are forced to fend for themselves. At first they co-operate, but when they split into two separate camps, their society falls into disarray, leading to a disturbing examination of human nature and a chilling conclusion.

The cast of 14 was selected from 37 auditionees, and specifically chosen for their work ethic, commitment, ability to work in a team and acting ability. Some of the actors are EYT veterans who've gathered lots of experience, and others are in their first year at EYT but have shown great promise and performance skills!

Lord of the Flies is an EYT+ show.

What's the difference between a regular EYT show and an EYT+ show?

Unlike normal EYT productions, EYT+ productions are selective, and students have to audition to get a part in them. With over 90 Senior students (i.e. aged 13-18) with varying levels of experience, we have a huge pool of talented actors to choose from. The students taking part in EYT+ shows are selected very carefully: we're looking for people who want to take drama seriously, and who will work hard to achieve an excellent performance. We're also careful to include a mix of experience and raw talent in the group: this means that students from all across the youth theatre take the lessons they've learned back to their respective groups, and strengthen the youth theatre as a whole. This also means that the group performing is different every year.

Additionally, EYT+ productions get more rehearsal time than regular EYT shows. In our Senior festival, the groups rehearse for 90 minutes a week, for 14 weeks. In an EYT+ production, the group meet once a week for 3 hours on a Sunday, and take part in highly focused rehearsals. They also take part in masterclasses during this time, which focus on building the key skills they will need for the show.
