A NEW WORKS FROM HOME PLAY READING
What if a woman rethought, reshaped, rebooted and rewrote the Pandora’s Box myth? That’s the premise of the play Pandora. Ignorance killed the cat. Curiosity was framed. What if a new adult female person—was suddenly created and dropped into the middle of the world now— someone with no preconceived notions of anything. What beauty is, what love is, what violence is. And what if the rest of humanity and gods could suddenly see the world through those clear eyes?
Remember to look up at the stars, not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.
