Pandora's Dolls

A play about the consequences of childhood neglect and trauma, at the 2014 Fringe Festival.

Pandora's Dolls is metaphoric rather than explicit, so there are no graphic representations of childhood abuse or trauma. Instead, there's a dream-like narration by the play's protagonist, Pandora.

In seven sessions with her psychiatrist, Pandora discusses the characteristics of the abuse she suffered. The abuse is depicted through words, music and symbolism.

When: 30th September - 4th October 2014
Where: Lithuanian Club
