Lord of the Flies presented by A Theatre Near U - The Pear Theatre teams up with the critically acclaimed company, A Theatre Near U, to present William Golding’s raw and terrifying classic story, The Lord of the Flies. Literally translated, the title refers to the demonic winged god of the Philistines —Beelzebub. The play follows a group of boys marooned on a remote tropical island, as they shed their cultured, highly-educated upbringings and descend rapidly into mad savagery. Filled with murder and mayhem, The Lord of the Flies is a stark examination of the tenuous thread our civilization hangs by. This haunting show is an experience you won’t soon forget.
