Drama Character Study Classical Adaptation Issue-Based

What would a group of girls do if they were abandoned alone, at a refugee camp, in an unnamed war zone, away from adults and civilization? As time passes without rescue, the girls face the adult challenges of creating and maintaining a working society, as they struggle to cooperate, understand their differences, define themselves, and survive. Will they establish civility or fall apart?

A response to the classic novel, Lord of the Flies. Please consider inclusive, racially conscious and gender-expansive choices in casting.
