Myth Today is a collaboration between PhD candidate Oonagh Pennington-Wilson and award winning playwright and University of Birmingham alumnus, Matthew Gabrielli.

For Arts & Science Festival, Oonagh and Matthew present a brand new play inspired by the Greek Myth of Pandora; the culmination of an innovative project in partnership with secondary school pupils from Christopher Whitehead Language College.

The event will be followed by a discussion led by Dr Polly Stoker from the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, who’ll shed light on Pandora and her role in the classical world.

Presented by the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology.
