Lord of the Flies: The Experience Based on the novel by WIlliam Goldberg and Adapted by Nigel Williams Reimagined and Directed by Kody C. Jones Hosted by Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium
Transport yourself into William Goldberg's iconic story of survival on a desert island and analyzing what it means to be human through this fully immersive production as you become an active search and rescue volunteer looking for sixteen missing children that went down on a plane somewhere in the middle of the ocean. The story is set against the background of nuclear war and a plane crash that forces a group of kids to cope with the human need for society and the animal need for survival. While protecting themselves from the outward threat of the beast, they discover that the real threat is their own primitive impulses. This visceral tale is reimagined in an interactive outdoor theatrical experience by Director Kody C. Jones, showcasing a breakdown of civilized behavior in a setting of isolation and unknowing.
