Speakers: Pandora, Epimetheus (brother of Prometheus), Prometheus (creator of mankind), Zeus (king of the gods), Vice and Hope
Prometheus: OK! So I suppose I was the real villain! If it hadn’t been for my actions, none of this would have happened.
Zeus: You’re right there! Did you really think you could trick me, king of the gods? And as for those human beings you created – I was proved right about them! They certainly got too big for their boots – with your help!
Prometheus: A silly error of judgement! Did you have to take it so seriously?
Zeus: What? Giving me a bag full of gristle, bones and hooves in place of the rich steak I was entitled to?
Prometheus: Well you did have a choice of 2 bags. It was just unlucky you chose the wrong one!
Zeus: And those humans got to keep the good one! How dare you put me in such a position! I should never have had to choose in the first place!
Hope: But how cruel to take fire away from humans! How were they then supposed to eat their meat? Raw?
Zeus: Quite so! A fitting punishment. Until Prometheus here decided to steal that fire back again!
Hope: He was only looking after his own. Those humans were so cold and hungry without their fire!
Vice: Sympathy and compassion! Huh! What weakness! Not like all those things I stood for!
