Pandora's Box narrative poem for performance in Ancient Greek style

Pandora's Box narrative poem for performance in Ancient Greek style

This an original poem by Kathy Bagley. I used it with a Year 6 class as the basis for a performance involving choral speaking in the Ancient Greek tradition. Actors carry out the actions of the story as they are read by the chorus. You can vary the number of voices speaking at any time, give certain lines to the characters, add music. I found there were enough roles for 90 children.
