One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

March 11, 2010

Synopsis

In an Oregon mental hospital, Nurse Ratched runs a perfectly disciplined ward. The patients follow her every rule and keep no secrets. Enter Randall P. McMurphy, just transferred from prison, with a love for gambling, sex, booze and confrontation. McMurphy bets his new friends that he can unravel Ratched in a week. Told through the foggy haze of Chief Bromden’s hallucinations, the play raises the need to question authority and to attack the subtle dulling of the human spirit by institutions. The novel, written in 1962, is one of the first steps taken in a life full of rebellion, by its Merry Prankster author, Ken Kesey. Ensemble member John Kelly Connolly makes his directorial debut.
