PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ancient Greek Myths Pandora's Box Class Play
This class play can be used for performance (assembly in UK) or as a class play, to be read within the classroom.
Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down
Duration - around 15 - 20 minutes reading not including music suggestions.
The Seven Deadly Sins plus all those Vices? No wonder our Narrator is worried! But as with all good stories, this one has a happy ending - well, maybe not for all those baddies!
This is one of a collection of Ancient Greek Myth scripts – assemblies and guided reading scripts, sold as separate and combined products. This play could also be used as a Citizenship resource – on resisting temptation, and the victory of good (hope) over evil (Seven Deadly Sins plus, in this case 19 Vices).
Sample Text:
Music 5 – You’re Beautiful – James Blunt
(Epimetheus sings love song to Pandora)
Narrator: (Indicating for music to stop) Yes, yes. We get it! Young love!
Epimetheus: Oh come on! Look at this perfect woman? How could I possibly resist?
Narrator: (To audience) Aha! Somebody else who couldn’t resist temptation!
(To Pandora) No offence to you, madam.
(To Epimetheus) But did you not look a little deeper? I mean, yes, she’s undoubtedly beautiful but
(Optional burst of The Price You Pay – Bruce Springsteen)
Pandora: (Angrily) Oh right! It’s the blond argument, right? The ‘well, if she looks that good, there can’t be much underneath’? No spirit, heh?
Music 6 Missionary Man – Eurythmics
(Pandora throws off her ‘pretty clothes’ displaying a much stronger image)
Narrator: (Holding up hand for music to stop) Whoa! That’s not the Perfect Pandora I was expecting!
Epimetheus: (Gasping) And that’s not a side of my wife I’ve ever seen before!
Pandora: Of course not! You only ever wanted me to be that perfect ‘domestic goddess’ – sitting around, looking pretty, staring vacantly out to space!
Epimetheus: Well, isn’t that what wives are supposed to do?
Narrator: Not this one, I suspect!
(Optional excerpt of Thorn in my Side – Eurythmics – Pandora strutting up and down)
Narrator: (Holding hand up) OK. Yes, we’ve got it! So underneath all that sweetness was a whole heap of frustration!
Pandora: More like mega boredom! I mean, what was I supposed to do all day?
Epimetheus: Stay out of mischief?
Pandora: (Laughing) What? After you’d told me not to do something!
Narrator: Quickest way to get someone to do something, in my experience!
Epimetheus: But I was supposed to be the one wearing the trousers!
(To Pandora) Not you!
Narrator: Oh dear! I can see this didn’t end well!
Epimetheus: Hardly! Not when she went and did exactly what I told her not to!
Music 7 Temptation – Heaven 7 (see Production Notes for performance)
Narrator: OK. So, back to this box!
