Written by Louis Nowra

 

Directed by Linda Holland

Set in 1971 in a Melbourne Mental Institution, Cosi is the story of Lewis, a young idealistic man brought in to direct and put on a show with a cast of mental patients.

Lewis has to learn how to work with patients who have a wide range of mental health issues including pyromania, obsessive compulsive behaviours, drug use and general psychotic tendencies.

Set against the background of the Vietnam War, Lewis learns to look past stereotypes and comes understand his actors and some truths about himself.

Funny and confronting at times, Cosi remains one of Australia’s best comedic plays.
