Photo Flash: Phoenix Theatre's COSI, 5/8-17

WHAT happens when you take a manic depressive, junkie, mute, overeater, doped-up musician, obsessive compulsive and pyromaniac and try to get them to perform a Mozart opera?

The answer is Cosi, the popular Australian play by Louis Nowra showing at Phoenix Theatre this May from the 8th to the 17th. Check below for pictures from the production!

It follows fresh-faced university graduate Lewis, who is contracted to put on a play at the local asylum with some of its patients - but he feels out of his depth directing them in the opera Cosi fan tutte.

Through working with the patients, Lewis eventually discovers a new side of himself which allows him to become emotionally involved and to value love.

Nowra is one of Australia's leading playwrights, responsible for Radiance, The Golden Age, Miss Bosnia and Summer of the Aliens.
