    Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures has created some of the most successful shows of the last 25 years, including Swan Lake, Nutcracker! and Sleeping Beauty.

    Now the company unites New Adventures dancers with remarkable young talent from the South East, in an extraordinary adaptation of William Golding’s classic novel, Lord Of The Flies choreographed by Olivier Award nominated Scott Ambler.

    Finding themselves abandoned in a deserted theatre, Golding’s legendary characters are imbued with raw energy, emotional intensity and breathtaking performances. Civilisation crumbles, the rulebook is forgotten and 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.

    Choreographed by Olivier Award-nominated Scott Ambler, set and costume design by Olivier Award-winner Lez Brotherston, music by Terry Davies, lighting design by Chris Davey, sound design by Paul Groothuis, adapted and directed by Olivier and Tony award-winner Matthew Bourne and Scott Ambler.

    Based on the novel Lord Of The Flies by William Golding.
