NMT Automatics presents

Pandora's Box

Thursday 8th February 8pm

An eerie forest, an abandoned palace and a mystery woman who holds the keys to the universe; if you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise...

In association with Redbridge Drama Centre, Greenwich Theatre & CentrE17, NMT Automatics presents Pandora's Box: a spellbinding new play, fusing drama, storytelling, music and dance, performed by a cast of professional actors and a chorus of Redbridge Youth Theatre Workshop and community members.

Like the sublime stories and mystical worlds of J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman and Phillip Pullman, this is a timeless tale that appeals to all ages; an epic story of friendship, courage and sacrifice.

Using animal physicality, object manipulation and magical illustrations, NMTA invite you to experience an alternate reality where beasts speak, chaos ravages the earth, and a man’s lust for power threatens the survival of humanity.

Pandora's Box is an imaginative retelling of an ancient legend, which has underpinned perceptions of women throughout the ages:  you've heard of the jewellery, you may know the myth... but do you know the truth?

Suitable for 7 years +
