What happens when a manic depressive, junkie, mute, overeater, doped-up musician, obsessive compulsive and a pyromaniac try to perform Mozart?
Cosi – a heart-warming and hilarious Australian play by Louis Nowra.
Set in a psychiatric facility, Cosi is a play about friendship, romance, infidelity and our perception of madness and sanity.
In 1971 Australia is protesting against the war in Vietnam and inside the asylum, the inmates are preparing for a performance of Mozart’s famous comic opera, Cosi Fan Tutte, even though no-one can sing, act or speak Italian.
What could possibly go wrong?
