    What would a group of young people do if left alone, away from civilization? In response to William Golding’s classic novel Lord of the Flies, in which a group of post-World War II British schoolboys are stranded on a desert island, Baalzebub tells the story of a group of young people who are stranded together on a kind of desert island: they are left behind at a refugee camp in an unnamed war zone. How are the ways they cope and behave the same as the boys in Lord of the Flies? How are they different? Baalzebub both mirrors the original tale of Lord of the Flies, and follows its own story that reflects a different and more contemporary group of characters and circumstances.

    We have asked several local hot new playwrights — Kelleen Conway Blanchard, Jesse Glick, Benjamin Benne, Julia Nardin, Seayoung Yim — to write 10 minute plays specifically created for this age group and set in a kitchen (the set of our main stage production of Grand Concourse). Each role is a wonderfully rich lead and will challenge our students to grow and carry the entirety of a full storyline.
