Louis Nowra's Australian classic 

COSI

Directed by Megan Dansie 

SYNOPSIS:
Nowra’s vibrant play is set inside a psychiatric institution in 1971. Lewis, a young director, takes on the task of mounting a production of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte in the burnt-out theatre. He becomes emotionally involved with his patients-cum-actors as his operatic production lurches forward and anti-Vietnam protests rage outside.First produced in 1992, COSI has become one of the most successful Australian plays produced in the last two decades. A terrific, funny play about madness, illusion, sanity… and theatre.

DIRECTOR'S COMMENTS:
This is a classic play, and deserves to be revived. It is one of the great ensemble pieces of Australian theatre. It is very funny, while having moving moments. It offers wonderful opportunities for a cast to play characters with often tragic backgrounds and mental illnesses, and then spread their comic wings to create a truly funny and absurd play within a play.
