by Louis Nowra. Directed by Simon Corvan and Kathleen Yorston.

A terrific play about madness, illusion, sanity… and theatre.

What happens when you take a manic depressive, junkie, mute, overeater, doped-up musician, obsessive compulsive and pyromaniac and try to get them to perform a Mozart opera?

The answer is Cosi, the popular Australian play by Louis Nowra.



Set in a psychiatric institution institution in 1971, Cosi follows fresh-faced university graduate Lewis, who is contracted to put on a play with some of the patients. He becomes emotionally involved with his patients-cum-actors as his production of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte lurches forward and anti-Vietnam protests rage outside.

Louis Nowra’s semi-autobiographical play, Così is a touching yet biting portrayal of human relationships in a Melbourne mental institution ostracised by society.
