Liverpool's international theatre troupe Teatro Pomodoro returns from lockdown slumber with its surreal Sirens, Men and Crabs.

From October 7–9, the Unity Theatre stage will see Ancient Greece turned upside down in a surreal odyssey that welcomes audiences to a world where the mythical Sirens are the unsung heroines, Ulysses will never be the hero he wants to be and Giant Crabs are taking over.

It’s directed by Mark Bell, the creative mind behind West End hits The Play That Goes Wrong and A Comedy About a Bank Robbery.

Audiences also have a chance to experience the show's absurdity in a specially recorded online performance via the Unity's web site from October 15–17, with audience members encouraged to simply 'pay what they can'.
