Tour of Matthew Bourne's New Lord of the Flies

Matthew Bourne's dance company has produced some of the most successful theatre dance productions including Swan Lake, Nutcracker!, Cinderella and the Sleeping Beauty.

Now his company New Adventures is staging William Golding's classic novel The Lord of the Flies which is going on tour next year opening at the Salford Lowry on 2nd April 2014.

The action takes place on a deserted island which then transfers to a deserted theatre where a group of schoolboys find themselves abandoned. With no adults they start to make their own rules and create their own civilisation, before order breaks down and the story builds to an electrifying climax.

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.
