About

Murwillumbah Theatre Company presents “Cosi” by Louis Nowra from May 26 to June 16 2024 at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre Auditorium.

The play is set in a psychiatric institution in 1971 and follows the story of a young director named Lewis who takes on the task of mounting a production of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte in a burnt-out theatre. The play explores themes of love, madness, and politics. It challenges our perceptions about these themes and encourages us to think about the subtle signs of madness and darkness in our own lives.

The irony of “a play within a play” is one of the defining aspects within Cosi. The production of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte works to promote the importance of love within the wider spectrum of Cosi

Cosi was first performed in 1992 at the Belvoir St Theatre in Sydney, Australia, Cosi is semi-autobiographical, and is the sequel to Nowra’s previous semi-autobiographical play, Summer of the Aliens. The play was adapted into the 1996 film Cosi.
