The Manufactured Woman – The Arts Society Chiswick

13 June @ 7:00 pm BST

In Greek legend, Pandora was created with the express purpose of causing trouble to men which, by opening her box, she achieved. 

Mary Sharp, lecture of this evening, looks at the original sources for the story, draws parallels with both Eve in Genesis and Galatea in Ovid before showing how ballets, operas and plays from Coppelia to My Fair Lady and The Winter’s Tale to Educating Rita have developed the theme of a creation that runs out of control.

Mary is an experienced broadcaster and teacher with particular expertise in literature and drama. She worked for many years for BBC Radio 4 producing some of its most popular programmes including Start the Week and Woman’s Hour before joining the senior management team as a Commissioning Editor.
