The Stirling Players
Stirling Community Theatre
Written By: Louis Nowra
Directed By: Megan Dansie
In the burnt-out theatre of a psychiatric hospital in the 1970s, Lewis, a young director, takes on Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte with a group of patients with no stage experience, but plenty to say.
Mayhem reigns at rehearsals. The cast challenge Lewis on everything from the opera's themes, to the Vietnam War, his values and his relationships, and he struggles to keep a grip on the production. But as he hears their stories, and sees them spreading their wings, he begins to see things, and his cast, in a new light.
Based on Louis Nowra’s own experience, COSI is a wonderfully entertaining, very funny and moving tribute to the healing power of performance, and the theatre in general.
You’d be mad to miss it!
