In the shadow of the Vietnam War, a young Australian director lands a job handling a group of inexperienced but colorful performers... in a mental institution. Against surprising and touching odds, a motley band of players emerges ready to perform Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte. But can they sing? And who speaks Italian? A madcap look at theatre behind the scenes, Così is ultimately a fresh, startling play about personal dreams, madness, ambition, disappointment, creativity and transformation.
“…a hoot from start to finish.” -- The Daily Express
