Reviews & Fringefeed Reacts
Through his delivery, his emphasis and his tone, Loizou managed to keep me captivated through the one hour long play. - Morgan Burley, Radio 101,5 Breakfast show
Loizou’s Oedipus is a soothing experience: songs that explore melancholy and love intersperse the play and weave around the story.... - Kate Riggs, Collage Adelaide
This one-man show by Loucas Loizou is wonderful and rather special. Loucas Loizou is something of a living ‘legend’ in certain circles. - Tony Knight, Stage Whispers
