"Couldn't direct traffic down a one-way street," says Roy of the hapless Lewis, whose task of directing the mentally ill in an operatic performance, is nigh on impossible…
And so, begins the mayhem that is Cosi, by renowned playwright Louis Nowra, in its most recent outing with the Lane Cove Theatre Company (LCTC).
Cosi is a play without bells and whistles. It's single-setting, requiring minimal props and special effects, with straight forward lighting and sound. Of course, the production elements are important but it is script and actor-focussed, and its charm lies in wit, humanity and abundance of character.
For an uplifting theatre experience, look no further than Cosi and for more information on bookings and how you can support this local theatre company and its quest for a permanent home, log onto LCTC's change.org page.
