Barrington associate artist Christopher Innvar will direct the production, to appear Oct. 5-23 at BSC's Mainstage in Pittsfield, MA. A popular title in school curriculum, Lord of the Flies will also get four student matinees (not open to the public) at 10 AM on Fridays Oct. 7, 14 and 21, and Tuesday, Oct. 18.
According to BSC, "A coming-of-age adventure story begins with a group of English school boys stranded on an island and ends with them as savages, playing life and death games."
"Lord of the Flies" was named one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century by Time magazine and ranked number 25 out of 100 on the Modern Library 100 Best Novels list.
There is a slight shift of the dates of the previously announced titles Guys and Dolls (now starting on the Mainstage on June 15, a week earlier, due to demand) and Lee Blessing's Going to St. Ives (now starting June 22 at BSC Stage 2).
The season also includes Jim Brochu's Off-Broadway hit Zero Hour, Mark St. Germain's new play The Best of Enemies and the musical The Game.
