Casting has been announced for Regent's Park Open Air Theatre's production of William Golding's Lord of the Flies, which returns following a sell-out run in 2011.

The production will open at the Open Air Theatre in September before embarking on a UK tour.

The cast will be completed by twin brothers Thiago Pigatto and Fellipe Pigatto as twins Sam and Eric. The role of Perceval will be shared by David Evans, Guy Abrahams and Ben Barker.

First published in 1954, Lord of the Flies was Golding's debut novel and follows a group of schoolboys as they fight for survival after a plane crash.

The production is directed by Timothy Sheader and co-directed by Liam Steel, with design by Jon Bausor, composition and sound score by Nick Powell, lighting design by Paul Keogan and sound design by Avgoustas Psillas for Autograph.
