NOOSA ARTS THE­ATRE

Noosa Life and Style - - THINGS TO DO -

NOOSA Arts The­atre is proud to an­nounce the three fi­nal­ists in the 41st Na­tional One Act play Writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion. Come along to en­joy these three plays in a night full of fun and hi­lar­ity, the au­di­ence is asked to vote for their favourite. The three fi­nal­ists are (in no par­tic­u­lar or­der): Pre­med­i­tated Mis­ad­ven­ture by Richard Har­ris, Old Maids by Ruth Tuxworth, An Au­tumn Ro­mance by Cerise de Gelder.

COSI: First pro­duced in 1992, COSI has be­come one of the most suc­cess­ful Aus­tralian plays. A ter­rific story about mad­ness, il­lu­sion, san­ity... and the­atre. In a men­tal in­sti­tu­tion in 1971, Lewis, a young direc­tor, takes on the task of mount­ing a pro­duc­tion of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte in a burnt-out the­atre while protests against the Viet­nam War are be­ing staged out­side. Di­rected by Jane Rivers

What The But­ler Saw is a shame­less com­edy by Joe Or­ton and di­rected by Ta­nia Nash. Fallen trousers, a lit­tle black­mail, and a lot of in­nu­endo abound in this chaotic romp of hys­ter­i­cally silly pro­por­tions. Throw in a govern­ment in­spec­tor, cross-dress­ing and slam­ming doors, and the laughs keep com­ing in this re­lent­lessly funny com­edy.
