First produced in 1992, COSI has become one of the most successful Australian plays. A terrific story about madness, illusion, sanity... and theatre.
In a mental institution in 1971, Lewis, a young director, takes on the task of mounting a production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte in a burnt-out theatre while protests against the Vietnam War are being outside.
Semi-autobiographical in nature, COSI explores a life lesson for Lewis. As his life is touched by these extraordinary people and his operatic production (Cosi Fan Tutte) lurches forward, we learn, along with Lewis, that when chasing your dreams it helps to be a little crazy.
On one level, COSI is a poignant look at life through the eyes of patients at an insane asylum. On another, 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.
