Cosi

Written by Louis Nowra
Directed by Steven Pearson

 

In the shadow of the Vietnam War, a young Australian director lands a job handling a group of inexperienced but colorful performers...in a mental institution. Against surprising and touching odds, a motley band of players emerges ready to perform Mozart’s "Così Fan Tutte." But can they sing? And who speaks Italian? A madcap look at theatre behind the scenes, "Così" is ultimately a fresh, startling play about personal dreams, madness, ambition, disappointment, creativity and transformation. 

 


…a hoot from start to finish.
