Following sell out performances in London, the critically acclaimed production of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies has embarked on a major UK autumn tour, and it stars two Buckinghamshire boys.
The story follows a group of schoolboys who survive a catastrophic plane crash, but what starts as a classic desert island adventure quickly descends into a struggle for survival in a darkly sinister world of superstition and immorality.
Golding’s 20th century classic explodes onto the stage in this remarkable production with incredible breathtaking sets, and arrives at Wycombe Swan on Tuesday (November 17) for a week through to Saturday (November 21).
The cast of young actors features two Buckinghamshire boys who will share the role of Perceval with a third boy. Benedict Barker is from Beaconsfield and David Evans is from High Wycombe. They share the role with Guy Abrahams.
Timothy Sheader, artistic director of Regent’s Park Theatre, who are producing the stage show, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be taking our production of Lord of the Flies out on the road this year, and bringing it to the Wycombe Swan. We were thrilled by the response to our production of To Kill A Mockingbird last year and look forward to showing audiences our take on another modern classic.”
Evening performances are at 7.30pm, with additional 2.30pm matinees on some days.
Tickets for the show cost from £19.50 to £29.50 online at www.wycombeswan.co.uk or call 01494 512000.
