Cosi is highly acclaimed as one of the funniest Australian plays to be written in the last few decades.
Director Sue Wylie has lovingly brought to life Brenton Whittle’s easy-going reflection on death in Well, Shut My Mouth. This new local play, boasting a confident and cohesive cast, meditates on what it means to “slip on to the other side” through the eyes of three generations of a very Australian family.
The over arching theme of memory is used to highlight the conflict between the three sisters who are gathered for their mother’s funeral. No-one’s memory is the same, even to having doubts about whose memory is whose. These sisters are very different from each other and are dealing with their loss in a personal way.
