Lord of the Flies
Our production of Lord of the Flies presents the classic story through a modern day, reflexive lense. Using three different post-dramatic spaces, the production combines the original text with modern day parallels involving the "parentless islands" that children find themselves in today. The "frame space" contextualizes the production in a frat party atmosphere where the participants begin to read the script as a part of a hazing ritual. The "island space" is where the actual play takes place. The "poetic wall" is a space that projects the modern day parallels of the "island space" activities, utilizing the connected but isolating idea of a computer desktop to manifest the concepts.
