Playwright and novelist Nigel Williams's stage adaptation of
William Golding's story was first professionally produced by the
Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon in July 1995.
'Remarkably true to the novel in spirit . . . the theatre lends
itself particularly well to the ritualistic aspects of the story -
chanting, dancing, marching, forming a circle round the victim,
stamping out a fire . . . You end up feeling you have seen a fable
of infinite implications enacted in a little room.' Sunday
Telegraph This special acting edition, particularly suitable for
schools and amateur groups, contains the full playtext as well as
notes on staging, a full properties list and lighting and sound
