Lord of the Flies By:

Lord of the Flies By: William Golding Lord of the Flies is a 1954 novel by Nobel Prize-winning English author William Golding about a group of British boys stuck on an uninhabited island who try to govern themselves with disastrous results. Published in 1954, Lord of the Flies was Golding’s first novel. Although it was not a great success at the time—selling fewer than 3,000 copies in the United States during 1955 before going out of print—it soon went on to become a best-seller. It has been adapted to film twice in English, in 1963 by Peter Brook and 1990 by Harry Hook, and once in Filipino (1976). The book indicates that it takes place in the midst of an unspecified nuclear war. Some of the marooned characters are ordinary students, while others arrive as a musical choir under an established leader. Most (with the exception of the choirboys and Sam and Eric) appear never to have encountered one another before. The book portrays their descent into savagery; left to themselves on a paradisiacal island, far from modern civilization, the well-educated children regress to a primitive state.

This fall, the Hertford Theater is producing The Hallelujah Girls, a comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten. Directed by Tom Laughlin, stalwart and founding member of the Theater, it stars Deborah Norbriga, Mark Anderson, both newcomers to the Carolina, strongly supported by Anne Taylor, Linda Gregory, May Robertson, Nelia Lane, Larry McLaughlin and Jacquie Zimmerman. Several of those names should be familiar to Carolina Theater fans. Loughlin has been heard to remark to his cast, “This may be the best show we’ve ever done here.” The Hallelujah Girls is a story of lost love, manicures, rising above hardship and the importance of a good facial, recreating yourself, reaching for your dreams, pedicures, saunas and Civil War legends. What more could an audience ask for in a sweet and salty comedy that will send them out laughing and humming Christmas carols? The technical side of the production, ably directed by long-time Carolina Theater member Steve Burket, ably seconded by Frank Norman and Mimi Galgano, promises to be spectacular as Galgano’s color scheme underlines and enriches the story of rebirth and romance while Burket’s foley & lighting effects highlight the dramatic and slightly fantastic nature of the action. There are times when you almost believe that there’s an army of bulldozers outside, ready to do their worst For those who demand a more educations side to their theatre, The Hallelujah Girls promises to offer answers to the following questions: How do you get rid of a headache without pills? How do you make your dreams come true? How do you protect your small Georgia town against Civil War general Tecumseh Sherman? What’s more American than being “determined, motivated and self-reliant”? What’s more romantic than being separated from your lover by being “struck by lightning while riding bareback on the cliffs above a fjord in Scandinavia”? And, also, “how do you get so much stuffing in these jalapenos?” With Carolina Theater’s signature refreshments offered at intermission, The Hallelujah Girl’s is guaranteed to offer audiences a good night out.
