Identity Theatre’s next production, Odyssey, has been announced for the 2012 season.
Andreas Litras’ remarkable one-man show Odyssey turns the mythical world of Homer’s epic upside-down. Nothing is sacred and everything is up for grabs as Litras leaves you breathless with a performance that comes straight from the heart.
Odyssey weaves the stories of Andreas’ migrant family through the legend of Odysseus, hero of the Trojan war. While Andreas shares his stories of family and fish’n’chips, it is the character of Karagiosi, the wise-cracking stage manager, who throws everything out the window and has the audience in hysterics with his own personal rendition of Homer’s Odyssey.
Journeys and characters cross paths as the performance moves between Andreas and Karagiosi, past and present, Greece and Australia, memory and imagination. Stunning in its irreverence, passion and joy; Odyssey celebrates what it means to find home.
Bookings are now available online and by telephone for the season performances scheduled between 13 March 2012 – 31 March 2012.
