Greek myths exploded at the Unity Theatre this autumn


Liverpool-based theatre troupe Teatro Pomodoro brings its Sirens, Men and Crabs to the Unity Theatre next month – more than a year after the show was originally due to visit the Hope Street venue.

The surreal clown odyssey will be at the Unity from October 7-9, with additional ‘pay what you can’ online screenings of the performance from October 15-17.

In this topsy turvy take on Ancient Greek myths and tragedy, Sirens are the unsung heroines, Ulysses will never be the hero he wants to be and Giant Crabs are taking over.

The company’s Simone Tani explains: "We'll have audiences laughing as seahorses dance to a Crabs' lament, crying as Ulysses abandons his family to go to war in a cardboard ship and wondering who on earth is actually telling this story anyway?"

The production is directed by Drama League Award nominee Mark Bell whose previous credits include Mischief Theatre’s The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About a Bank Robbery.

Teatro Pomodoro is a five-strong international theatre troupe whose members hail from Canada, Spain, Italy, Japan...and Huyton.

The company is dedicated to creating cutting edge theatre that explores how the anarchic qualities of clown and bouffon and the relationship between the performer and audience can create a unique theatrical experience.
