New Gippsland based theatre company, KCC Theatre, will perform one of Australia’s favourite plays, Cosi, at the Stratford Courthouse Theatre on Saturday, August 20.

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. Lewis Riley isan unemployed young man who applies for a job as a director/drama teacher at a mental hospital. He lands the job and finds himself directing a production of the Mozart opera Così Fan Tutte.

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 roller coaster all the way to opening night. Warning: The play includes strong language and adult themes (drug-use, illicit activity, suicide) Tickets $25 ($20 concession). Doors open at 7pm.
