Thesping it up al fresco style

It’s a brave (or stupid) man who commits himself to an entire night sitting outside during the less than dependable British summer. Count us courageous then, as when the opportunity to visit The Open Air Theatre in London’s Regent’s Park presented itself, we ignored our better judgment and threw caution to the elements.

The show? William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. You know the tale. A group of schoolboys crash land on a desert island before turning on each other in their dog-eat-dog struggle for survival. Unforgiving stuff.

The show, adapted for stage by Nigel Williams, was riveting, gory and grippingly performed – all of which was made more potent by the bracing outdoor conditions.

Lord of the Flies will remain in-situ in the park up until June 19th, after which The Beggar’s Opera, Shakespeare’s Pericles and Gershwin’s Crazy For you will take the Open Air Theatre through to September. Thoroughly Recommended.
