Students from Mazenod rehearse Lord of the Flies.

A group of Australian children is put on a plane, bound for safety. But it never arrives at its destination.

What happens when there is no one left in charge? What happens when civilisation falls away and we are left to survive in a precarious, disintegrating mockery of the social structures we left behind?

Maybe we’re all just…. savages.

Year 11 and 12 drama students from Mazenod College are presenting their interpretation of Golding’s classic story Lord of the Flies for a contemporary audience. They have been rehearsing three times a week since the start of the school year.

It will run Wednesday, March 30, to Saturday, April 2, at 7pm in the Fr Don Hughes Performing Arts Centre at Mazenod College, 55 Gladys Road, Lesmurdie.

Doors open at 6.45pm. Tickets are $10 and available from www.trybooking.com/KRCM.

They can also be obtained from the school on 9291 6500. Due to the graphic nature of some scenes, parental discretion is advised for children under 10. Smoke effects are used during the performance.
