‘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 1971, Così is Louis Nowra’s second semi-autobiographical play. Lewis has recently left university and takes up a job in a mental institution directing Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte. Lewis, the non-participant, becomes emotionally involved with his actors’ lives as his operatic production lurches forward and anti-Vietnam protests take place in the streets outside.

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