The talented students of the Feltonfleet School star in this creepy adaptation of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies.

Hoping to protect them from the bombs being dropped during wartime, a group of English schoolboys are sent away. When their plane crashes on a deserted island, the boys suddenly find themselves with no rules and no supervision, putting some of them in touch with their inner-savage.

To my unexpected surprise, some of the best performances I have seen at the fringe this season have come from this young cast. Despite their youth, they are unafraid to commit themselves entirely to this challenging story and to their characters. The setting at Augustine’s also compliments the show perfectly, creating a highly effective duality between the “good” and “evil” sides of the island. Clearly, there is something to be said for the raw talent of children, and this group absolutely sparkles.

Reviews by Fritzie Andrade

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
