The play

Louis Nowra
 

‘Nowra has written a terrific play about theatre, madness, illusion, sanity, life: it’s a big, splendidly Australian epic.’ FRANK GAUNTLETT, Telegraph Mirror

Set in a mental institution in 1970, Così is Louis Nowra’s second semi-autobiographical play. Lewis has recently left university and takes up a job directing Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte. Lewis the non-participant becomes emotionally involved with his actors’ lives as his operatic production lurches forward and the anti-Vietnam protests take place in the streets outside.

‘Nowra’s generous humour offers up a word of the most extraordinary, ordinary people; and a hilarious situation-comedy, to boot … [but there are] hints of darkness that lies beyond the light: the real world.’

ANGELA BENNIE, Sydney Morning Herald
