Andreas Litras' remarkable one-man play, Odyssey, interweaves three narratives: Homer's Odyssey, the ancient tale, provides the template for an enactment of Litras' parents', Angelo and Paraskevi's, migration to Australia, and the performer's personal search for a sense of identity and belonging as the son of Greek immigrants.
Litras weaves the stories of his family through the legend of Odysseus, the hero of the Trojan War.
In this beautifully crafted autobiography we witness Greek tragedy, comedy and the everyday.
Truly epic drama.
