I was shocked today to see the announcement of a production for Lord of The Flies, in the Chicago Tribune. Furthermore, I was even more shocked to find out that the Evansville Civic Theater was going to be putting on a production of Lord of The Flies.
Visions of blood, gore, and regret is all I can imagine when thinking about the 1954 Novel. However, it’s not the book I envision, but the ultimately disturbing movie from 1990. Keep in mind I was at a very impressionable age when the movie first came out and honestly it left a lasting impression on me.
The new production will be put on in Mesker Park over areas of the Disc Golf course. I am truly anxious to see how it plays out, no pun intended. Also, I shall come in costume, complete with war paint and spear.
