Event Details

Beechworth Theatre Company presents the wonderful 'Cosi' by Louis Nowra! A semi-autobiographical play set in a Melbourne mental institution in 1971, 'Cosi' follows the journey of young Lewis, fresh out of university and newly employed by the institution to direct a drama production with the patients. 

When long term patient, Roy, hears about the activity he insists that the non-singing, non-acting, mostly quite mad ensemble of 6 put on the elaborate (and Italian) opera, Cosi Fan Tutte! With a backdrop of new ideas in psychiatry in the 70's, the sexual revolution, the 2nd wave of the women's lib movement, and an Australia deep in the clutches of the Vietnam War, Lewis finds himself having to decide what's more important in his life - his friends from university and their political activism, or his chance to make a difference in the lives of his actors. 

Performance rights for COSI exclusively licenced by HLA Management Pty Ltd, P.O. Box 1536, Strawberry Hills NSW 2012 (
