SYNOPSIS:

COSI by Louis Nowra

The year is 1971 and as people march in the streets protesting against the Vietnam War a young director named Lewis endeavours to mount a production of Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte in a small burnt-out theatre on the grounds of a mental institution with a cast of madmen. COSI explores the life lesson that Lewis experiences as his life is touched by these extraordinary people. As his operatic production lurches forward, the audience learn, along with Lewis, that when chasing your dreams it helps to be a little crazy. This play is a poignant look at life through the eyes of patients at an insane asylum. It’s an hilarious take on the madness of creative endeavour and the chaotic terror of getting up there and making a fool of yourself. First produced in 1992, COSI has become one of the most produced Australian plays. Semi-autobiographical in nature, Louis Nowra has written a terrific play about madness, illusion, sanity…and theatre.

Featuring Andrew Alley, Elodie Boal, Benjamin Bray, Bradley Chapman, Aaron Dora, Skyah Lunar Fishpool, Rachel Hunt, Dudley Powell, Brent Schon, Matt Steenson and Jermia Turner

Directed by Timothy Wynn

    It helps to be a little crazy when you’re on a crowded bus and the seat next to you is empty!

    Never hurts to be a bit out there if someone’s scabbing food off your mates and decides to steer clear of you.

    What a fantastic rendition of this Aussie classic! The acting is spot-on from the whole cast and energy is always at a maximum. Roy and Henry were the two stand-outs for me. Very clever sound and lighting allow for some of the best scene changes I’ve ever seen and a really funny opening to Act II. The show strikes the perfect balance of witty and raunchy humour, and no moment on stage is boring or unnecessary. Make an effort to see this banger of a production while it’s still showing.
