Lord Of The Flies Review

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Drama coursework - Mr Asquith Review of 'Lord of the flies' Paragraph 1 On Wednesday 4th March, I went and saw 'Lord of the Flies' at the Unicorn Theatre. Lord of the Flies was performed by the Pilot Theatre and the director was Marcus Romer. This play was also adapted for the stage by Nigel Williams. Paragraph 2 The reason for this piece of writing is that it is part of my year 10 coursework and this will give me a taste of how to review more pieces of stage performances and it will also see how good I am at reviewing performances now so that I can later improve on it. Paragraph 3 My general opinion of the play is that it is a must see for young teenagers between the ages 13 to 17. I liked the way that they used the lights to show lots of different emotions and objects. ...read more.

The projections are another great feature that makes this play very good, the projections made the scene a lot more interesting and believable for example, when they were chasing after the pig the projections show a pig like figure running through the trees. Paragraph 4 I believe that the costume is actually one of the most important aspects of the entire play because it not only tells you what kind of people they are it also tells you how long they have been on the island. For example, when Ralph arrives on the island he immediately begins removing his uniform showing that he is a very chilled out character. Another example is when Jack leads the rest of the students on to the stage they are all in perfect uniform, later in the play their uniform have all been ripped up. Their trousers and shirts are all unbuttoned and none of they are wearing their ties this symbolises that they are out of civilisation and can do want ever they want to do. ...read more.

Conclusion

I also believe that they could have explained a lot more things in the play as there were a few of scenes that didn't make sense, for example the little boy that comes out from the plane and tells them about the beast. They should have somehow told us how he arrived on the island of why he just disappeared after. Paragraph 7 I give the play a rating of 3 stars because it is interesting but then on the other hand there is a lot of unexplained things in the play for example when everyone was on the beach and a random child comes out from nowhere to tell them about the beast and then you never see him again in the play. Overall I would say that this is a very good play for teenagers and adults, I do not really believe that this play is for kids under the age of 12 because, there is violence and there is also some swearing. These kids will still be very immature and therefore the play is not very good for them. By Andrew Gurgel ...read more.

    Generally I found the performance of the cast to be rather poor and lacking in commitment.

    In contrast however, there are amusing scenes, like when Lenny is talking to his crush, Linda. In between the conversation the actor gets up runs around excitable and making siren noises, in the same way a cartoon would have elaborate actions.
