Everybody knows the story of Pandora. She was given a box that was not to be opened under any circumstances. But her curiosity got the better of her and she is to blame for releasing jealousy, grief, greed, and disease into the world. But is that the whole story?

Pandora's Fire is a wonderful mix of Ancient Greek choral storytelling with a modern twist.
