Lewis, a young director and a university drop out, takes a job in a mental asylum working with patients who are interested in the dramatic arts. He thinks his work will involve staging a small variety show with the group, until long term patient Roy hijacks the show and insists that the production be nothing less than a grand staging of Mozarts opera Cosi Fan Tutte.
An ambitious thought to say the least! After all, none of the patients can speak Italian, nor sing and the cast is made up of aging nymphomaniacs, obsessives and pyromaniacs. Lewis is faced with the daunting task of drawing performances from a disparate group of people brought together by their individual needs and desires.
By contrasting the passion and fervour of the anti Vietnam movement with a world of isolation and control behind closed doors, Nowra allows all the characters in his play to find fulfilment and humour in the making of a piece of theatre.
