Oct. 3 was the opening performance of  Lord of the Flies, the DCPA Theatre Company’s provocative adaptation of William Golding’s classic novel. Stranded on a deserted island, a group of English schoolboys become intoxicated by sudden freedom. Their time on the beach quickly descends not only into a savage struggle for power, but an exploration into whether man’s inherent nature is to be civilized or animals.
