This show has been cancelled
Hull Truck Theatre is continuing to follow Government guidance and will be closed to the public until November 2020. We are working with partners and visiting companies to reschedule all shows so that audiences who have missed performances during the closure period still get to enjoy the great programme of entertainment that had been planned.
We have joined forces with Derby Theatre to present a thrilling and highly charged production of William Golding’s classic novel Lord of the Flies.
In the midst of war and in the wake of a disastrous plane crash, a group of schoolchildren are left
stranded on a desert island. With no adult supervision, they relish the freedom to govern themselves, but order soon collapses as their world plunges into violent brutality.
Lord of the Flies is a timeless masterpiece, as relevant today as it was when Golding first published his novel in 1954. This contemporary retelling examines the terrifying path to humanity’s self destruction.
A pioneering theatre with a unique Northern Voice, locally rooted, global in outlook, inspiring artists, audiences and communities to reach their greatest potential. We produce and present inspiring theatre that reflects the diversity of a modern Britain. We provide the resources, space and support to grow people and ideas, are an ambassador for our city, a flagship for our region and a welcoming home for our communities. Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
