'Nowra has written a terrific play about theatre, madness, illusion, sanity, life: it's a big, splendidly Australian epic. Frank Gauntlett, Telegraph MirrorSet in 1971, Cosi is Louis Nowra's second semi autobiographical play. Lewis has recently left university and takes up a job in a mental institution directing Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte. Lewis, the non participant, becomes emotionally involved with his actors' lives as his operatic production lurches forward and anti Vietnam protests take place in the streets outside.'Nowra's generous humour offers up a world of the most extraordinary, ordinary people, and a hilarious situation comedy to boot [but there are] hints of a darkness that lies beyond the light: the real world.Angela Bennie, Sydney Morning Herald
