Liverpool's international theatre troupe Teatro Pomodoro returns to the city with a new show this April: Sirens, Men and Crabs: A Shipwrecked Odyssey.

Debuting at the Unity Theatre April 23–25, it turns Ancient Greece upside down in a surreal clown odyssey. The show welcomes audiences to a world where the Sirens are the unsung heroines, Ulysses will never be the hero... and Giant Crabs are taking over.

The group itself is based in Merseyside and made up of performers from across the globe, with Carmen Arquelladas (Spain), Duncan Cameron (Canada), Miwa Nagai (Japan), Simone Tani (Italy) and Huyton-born Leebo Luby.
