Calendar > Cosi


Set in a Melbourne mental hospital in 1971, Lewis, an unemployed young man who applies for a job as a director/drama teacher at the hospital. He lands the job and finds himself directing a production of the Mozart opera Così fan tutte, an elaborate, demanding piece of theatre, an opera in Italian. And it is going to be performed by a cast that he must select from among the patients, who only speak English and don’t sing!

As Lewis confronts the enormity of his task, he begins to realise the frightening and attractive power of madness, politics, theatre and love.
