Their relationship is physical and passionate, but his ardour has cooled, leaving her emotionally stranded and desperate. Taking place over the course of one day we witness her battle as she struggles to come to terms with her situation and to find a reason to go on living. Will she return to William or will Freddie relent, and how will the interactions with others in the apartment block affect her circumstances and decision?

Performance rights exclusively licenced by HLA Management Pty Ltd.

Season 3, 2022: Aug 18 - Sept 3

Matinees: Sun 21 & 28 Aug & Sat 3 Sept

It’s 1971 and outside on the streets, Australia is protesting the war in Vietnam. But inside a burned-out theatre, the resident patients of a mental asylum are listening to Mozart, learning their lines and occasionally skipping their medication. Louis Nowra’s renowned Australian comedy finds light in the darkness and challenges our perceptions about love, madness, and humanity. A darkly funny and deeply moving ensemble piece, “Cosi” celebrates theatre and its power to transform lives.

“All women become like their mothers.” Oscar Wilde

 

Maggie is middle-aged. She returns to her childhood home to “go through” her recently-deceased, widowed-mother’s estate. Edna lived there for half a century. Longer. The house is full of “things”. Maggie’s memories flood back. There are long-forgotten photos, toys, newspapers, and knick-knacks. Edna was a hoarder. Who gets what? What do you keep? What will Maggie discover?

 

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and I think come away totally satisfied. In other words, it’s a winner. It’s highly recommended. John Gunn – Curtain Up
