About the event

Following a smash-hit season in Melbourne, Così comes to Sydney Theatre Company for the first time. With a cast of loveable characters, it’s a heart-warming and hilarious Australian comedy you won’t want to miss.

Set in a psychiatric facility, Così is a play about friendship, romance, community and difference. It’s 1971 and Australia is protesting the war in Vietnam. But inside the hospital, the resident patients are listening to Mozart, learning their lines and occasionally skipping their medication. It’s art, it’s mayhem, it’s a wonderful rollercoaster all the way to opening night.

The icing on the cake is that it’s all based on playwright Louis Nowra’s own life. In the 1970s, he himself directed a musical with patients from Melbourne’s Mont Park Psychiatric Hospital. The one-off performance brought joy to everyone involved.

Now, Helpmann Award-winning Director Sarah Goodes (The Children) brings this joy to our stage. With its cast of loveable characters, Così offers a touching reminder of how art can make our spirits soar. It stars Gabriel Fancourt (A Midsummer Night's Dream; Lord of the Flies), Esther Hannaford (Hairspray; Beautiful) and Glenn Hazeldine (Away; Arcadia).

★★★★½ “Cosi stands test of time in outstanding new production.”
