    1. Reading this play out loud in class was certainly interesting with all the swear words and inappropriate jokes Hahahaha


    2. What a great play to be set as a Year 12 VCE text- playing psychoanalyst to these dysfunctional thespians and their love/lack of love is an enjoyable discussion to say the least.




    3. My drama class studied and performed this for our senior production this year and as with most prescribed literature or plays forced upon- that aren't Shakespeare, mostly- I didn't like it to begin with. I initially looked at it with a stark realism, and saw only raving mad people and a couple of political kooks. But Cosi is not only (and perhaps not even) presenting the perception of madness, but more rather questioning it, the impact of an ostracised society and the morals of love and life. It [...]


    4. This was fun. Set amidst the 70's backdrop of free love, Lewis, a recent university graduate, becomes the director for a mental institution's play - Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, an opera about love and infidelity. Only no one can sing, few can act, and Lewis is hardly equipped to deal with the various patients' quirks.There isn't much room to give the character's a lot depth, but I think the play did an okay job with its portrayal of the characters from the mental institution. They weren't demonised [...]


    5. I've always thought that love was being foolish and stupid. It's about being on the edge and I like being on the edge. It's not divine madness like some people think, there's no such thing as divine madness, madness is just madness. Love is hallucinating without drugs.I don't know why I just sat down and read this play but it was a really good play! It follows a bunch of mental patients working together to stage a musical; it's interesting to see the difference in the characters!I also love that [...]


    6. Probably one of the more entertaining texts I read for VCE, Cosi tells the tale of a man who needs money and decides to work at a mental hospital to put on a play with the current residents, based on Mozarts Cosi Fan Tutte. The humour is entertaining and I found a sympathy more with the people who were unwell, than those living outside of the asylum. I think my favourite character was Doug, the pyromaniac, whose shrewd humour always got a laugh in class. It's a short, sweet play, focusing on the [...]


    7. I had read this prior to exams I swear - I just hadn't gone on for a while. I actually really liked this play. Ive always enjoyed stuff to do with old mental hospitals and stuff and I love how this one incorporates so much humour. I also love how Lucy speaks her mind! Lewis tries to slut shame and she wont let him! It's awesome. Loved acting as Lucy in a class performance of a sceneur stars not five because although it was really good it wasn't like OMG WHAT AN AWESOME BOOK if you get my drift. [...]


    8. This is the first play I have read. It is a book for school but I am finding myself really enjoying it. The text brings out a personality and a complex history for all of its characters each one of them an interesting and captivating subject from the causes of mental illness the bear so boldly to their hopes and aspirations of producing a quality performance that will keep themselves and those around them hopeful.


    9. I read this play for English, and I can truly say I have never loved a play so much! All the characters are so quirky with their traits and bring this light hearted funny passionate play to life! We finished the play today in class and already we are organizing to try and do a production because we loved it that much! Well down Norwa, you have made a group of year 12 English students enjoy their class text


    10. Insightful outlook on mentally ill patients and those who stereotype the mentally ill. Mostly humorous and with fun interactions between the characters that may capture the interest of those who would not usually read anything related to psychosis and other mental disorders. I liked it but did not love it.


    11. This was a funnier play than you would think, considering that its cast is mostly comprised of mental patients. Brilliant, actually, is the word I would use. We only read through this without performing it, and I mostly took the part of Cherry, not that anybody really needs to know that.


    12. Louis Nowra was my drama teacher and resident playwrite at University. I am going to see the production at the Arts Theatre Brisbane during it's April season here. I recall studying his original radio play Albert names Edward, which for an 18 year old was like an epiphany!


    13. We did this show in November. After Romeo & Juliet, Bent & Death & the Maiden, it was nice to take on a comedy!It was a fun show to do. Not the most challenging of light designs, but a funny script.


    14. Cosi is a semi-autobiographical play set in 1970s Melbourne Australia that takes place within a mental asylum. The social and political issues in the 1970’s, Nowra draws on, are central to our understanding of his concerns and meaning in the play. A Great Read! Rating Clarification: 5 Stars



    15. Didn't enjoy this much. Interesting in parts but i found its themes opaque and was glad to finish it in the end. May well work better on stage.




    16. 4.5 stars ~ I thoroughly enjoyed reading this play. Each of the characters were so unique and in some way or another, I could relate to all of them. This was a great, quick read.


    17. Popular culture rings with silence on the subject of mental illness. This play is right to tackle the topic and our perception of it.




    18. Boring and unnecessary. I find the play doesn't have a strong enough plot or intrigue within it. The characters are bland and uninteresting, and the overall story is just plain terrible





    19. Though I read this for school, I thought that this play was really creative, funny and just enjoyable. I also saw a production of this with my class and we all loved it :)
