In Loucas Loizou's adaptation, Odysseus is an old man now, living in his country in Ithaca. He spends his time singing and telling the stories of Trojan war, the Cyclops, the underworld, Circe, the suitors, Penelope and more, to people who gather at his house to listen from him about his wanderings.
Loucas Loizou has performed over 2000 shows in London and he has too many ★★★★★ to mention between 1974 and 1981 after Cat Stevens gave him his first job singing in his family's restaurant.
