Images are released today of the cast celebrating the opening of Lord of the Flies, as the production embarks on a 6-month UK tour. The sold out run at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre ends this Saturday, with a UK tour launching from New Victoria Theatre, Woking next Wednesday 16 September.

After a group of schoolboys survive a plane crash, what starts as a classic desert island adventure quickly descends into a struggle for survival in a darkly sinister world of superstition and immorality. Adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams, William Golding’s 20th century classic explodes onto the stage in this remarkable production direct from London’s award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

The cast of young actors features Freddie Watkins (Nativity) as Jack, Luke Ward-Wilkinson (Wild at Heart, Beautiful People) as Ralph, Anthony Roberts as Piggy, Keenan Munn-Francis (The Scottsboro Boys, The Lion King) as Simon, Matthew Castle as Roger, Dylan Llewellyn as Henry, Michael Ajao as Maurice, Yossi Goodlink as Bill and Jonathan Holby as Naval Officer. Twin brothers Thiago Pigatto and Fellipe Pigatto will play twins Sam and Eric. The role of Perceval will be shared by David Evans, Guy Abrahams and Benedict Barker.
