Flies’ – darkly comic brilliance from LVI Drama
Thursday 10 March 2016
AS Drama and Theatre Students presented a superlative production of Oliver Lansley’s Flies on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 March.
In a series of cleverly selected extracts from this remarkable one-act play, we witness an unemployed dental assistant’s debilitating fear of flies (or pteronarcophobia, to use the scientific term!). Intriguingly, we also gain an insight into the mind of the Fly itself, and soon learn that the hatred is mutual.
The girls chose to adopt a highly physical, abstract approach to this fascinating text, and were heavily influenced by the work of Steven Berkoff.
