The theater adaptation of Sir William Golding's Nobel Prize-winning novel "Lord of the Flies," a world classic, will be staged in Turkey for the first time after playing in Sydney. The posters for the play, produced by the Temaşa Theater, were shot in the Belgrade Forest. After rehearsals by the New York Theater Academy's new generation of actors are completed the play will debut on Oct. 18 in Istanbul, followed by four more shows on Oct. 19, 20, 26 and 27.

"Lord of the Flies" is about a group of schoolchildren stranded on a desolate island after an atomic war, turning away from the civilized traditions of the world from which they have come and reveal a terrible truth underlying human nature.
