First there is the tragic story of Pandora’s Box, where a curious woman opens a box left in her husband’s care by the gods and unleashes all the evils of the world.

Second there is the rather spooky Story of Persephone, where the daughter of the goddess of the Earth is kidnapped by the Lord of the Underworld, Hades. This became the story by which the Ancient Greeks explained the light of summer and the dark of winter.

Finally, there is the salutary tale of King Midas, who was granted a wish by the god, Dionysus, that everything he touched would turn to gold. Unfortunately, this meant he could neither eat nor drink – and there were other dire consequences too.

As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume-making.

Please note: there is no music with this play. Please feel free to add your own instrumental music between each play.
