This heart-warming and hilarious Australian comedy comes to STC for the first time.

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 roller coaster 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.
