Così @ Southbank Theatre


It is 1971 Australia and outside a nation is protesting the war in Vietnam. Inside, a cast of complete amateurs are preparing for a performance of Mozart's famous comic opera, Così Fan Tutte, even though no-one can sing, act or speak Italian. Its aspiring young director, Lewis, has just finished drama school and his first directing gig is at a psychiatric facility. What could possibly go wrong? Welcome to the mayhem of Louis Nowra's Così. A darkly funny and deeply moving ensemble piece, Così has occupied a special place in the hearts of Australians since Toni Collette, Ben Mendelsohn and Barry Otto starred in the acclaimed 1996 film. With its motley crew of loveable characters, Così offers a poignant reminder of the transformative power of music and performance, and how it can make us soar - even if just for a moment. Sarah Goodes (A Doll's House, Part 2) directs this warm-hearted, laugh-out-loud comedy classic with a stellar cast including the start of ABC's Cleverman series, Hunter Page-Lochard, Esther Hannaford, fresh from her acclaimed role in Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, and MTC favourite Katherine Tonkin (Three Little Words)....
