ABOUT

A new digital adaptation of a Youtheatre classic. 

What starts as an innocent search quickly escalates for 16 year-old Pandora, as the world of online porn unfolds before her. Conflicted yet drawn in by what she sees, Pandora begins to feel the impact on her real-world relationships. Drawing inspiration from the Greek myth of Pandora’s box, Pandora explores the dangers of defining oneself through the prism of the internet, and the importance of remaining plugged into the real world.

Press

“P@ndora is unlike almost any show I’ve seen … the show is barefaced and unapologetic in its language and themes. Yet it’s also poetic, suggestive and nuanced, a clever variation on the Greek myth of Pandora and her monster-filled box.”
Now Magazine

“Berthiaume’s script is remarkable in raising many important issues in our attitude towards cyberspace through its open-ended nature and allegorical features. I always say that expression over exposition is the way to go in a visual medium, and P@ndora as a whole effortlessly delivers on that front.”
The Theatre Reader

“The text is laced with metaphor, the staging highly stylized and the context surreal. Such a combination could have spelled disaster in less capable hands. But (the) world premiere of P@ndora, a Youtheatre play about a teenage girl’s troubling encounter with online pornography, was an unmitigated success.”
The Gazette

“P@ndora is Unflinching, Vital and Important Theatre for Young Audiences”
Mooney on Theatre
