By Louis Nowra. La Boite (Qld). Roundhouse Theatre. 8 February – 8 March 2014
Cosi is the star, David Berthold’s superlative cast and crew make it scintillate.
It illuminates theMake Love Not War 1970s revolution. Without proselytising, Nowra’s characters illustrate the major issues.
Recent university graduate, Lewis (Ben Schostakowski), accepts a job in a mental institution where he is expected to ‘put on a show’. Dominant mature thespian, Roy (Trevor Stuart), with a passion for Mozart, has already assembled inmates for the opera, Cosi FanTutte. Conflict from the outset!
